In treating athlete’s foot, you should take the same precautions as you would when you have toenail fungus. As Jonathan have mentioned in his post, it is important that you observe good foot hygiene that includes drying your feet well before wearing shoes, avoid wearing the same socks two days in a row, and wear the right footwear in public shower rooms and gyms. If your condition persist, it is better if you seek professional help in order to gain the right treatment and to avoid your athlete’s foot from worsening.
