We all know that fungus loves damp, moist environments, and those convenient, slip-on, foam shoes, worn with no socks, provide an excellent breeding ground.
Here's some tips on avoiding fungal infections while you're outside enjoying one of your favorite pastimes:
- Wear socks. Whether you're wearing real or fake Crocs, make sure you are wearing socks. The socks will help wick and keep away moisture from your feet.
- Practice good hygiene. Wear gloves while you're gardening. If you're not into wearing gloves, make sure you wash your hand thoroughly.
- Find better shoes. Shoes with open holes are not ideal for working out in the garden, especially when there's mud involved. Look for shoes with closed backs and no holes, like Croc Boots.
- Know when you need treatment. Fungus is easy to get but difficult to get rid of on your own. Know when you need to call your podiatrist to help you get back to your favorite hobby fungus free.
