Suggestion Sunday: Preventing Athlete’s Foot
by Brittanyf on November 13, 2011 at 03:00 PM EST

I never knew how bad athlete’s foot could get until this past week. All I have to say is gross! I had seen mild cases of it, but I had never seen bumps and skin peeled off.

There are ways to prevent athlete’s foot and I know that I will take care of my feet 12x better now.

According to WebMD.com:

  • Keeping your feet clean and dry.
  • Dry between your toes after swimming or bathing.
  • Wear leather shoes or sandals that allow your feet to breathe.
  • When indoors, wear socks without shoes.
  • Wear cotton socks to absorb sweat. Change your socks twice a day. (White socks do not prevent athlete’s foot, as some people believe.)
  • Use talcum or antifungal powder on your feet.
  • Allow your shoes to air for at least 24 hours before you wear them again.
  • Wearing shower sandals in public pools and showers.

Other interesting fact that I read was that if you have athlete’s foot, dry your groin area before your feet after bathing. That can cause jock itch. I love being in the know about things, but some things makes my skin crawl. I have gone to the public pool without shower sandals on. I don’t think I will ever do that again!!!
