Athlete’s foot, is there a cure for it? Yes, there’s a cure for it. Today, we’re going to discuss how to prevent it to come about in the first place.
You don’t have to be an athlete to get Athlete’s foot. It is common with everyone. The root cause of athlete’s foot is moisture in this shoe that stays. And perspiration causes moisture.
What is Athlete’s Foot?
Athlete’s foot (Tinea Pedis) is an infection of the skin that can be caused by a variety of fungi. In order to grow and populate, Tinea Pedis needs warmth and moisture to grow making your feet a tropical paradise.
Some easy ways to prevent athlete’s foot from cause you discomfort are:
- Keep your feet dry, cool and clean
- Wear proper fitting shoes – more on this later
- Wear socks that are self-wicking, moving moisture away from the feet
- Wear sandals
- Have multiple shoes that you can rotate
If you work out, play sports or any activity that is going to cause you to sweat in your shoes, have 3-4 shoes that you can rotate through allowing them to fully dry out before the next use.
Make Sure Your Shoes Fits Correctly
Many people wear shoes that are too tight and don’t allow their foot to breath. An orthopedic therapeutic shoe is designed differently to give your feet the room they need breath and dry out. Orthopedic therapeutic shoe has a toe box (front of the shoe where your toes are) that’s deeper, wider, and allow you wiggle your toes.
