You may be wondering what actually is a fungal infection and where does it come from. A fungal infection can attach itself between the toe fingers to anyone while on holiday, at the local swimming baths or at a gym.
Any moist or damp environmental context is where fungi can easily attack. This usually occurs on a person’s foot or on both their feet.
The infection level ranges from mild to severe. A mild infection means that your skin will be discolored and a possibility your nail will have become swollen.
Severe cases are the ones where normal organ functioning is disrupted and you require immediate medical attention.
If you are sharing socks with a member of your family who has been infected it can transfer itself to you.
Pets can transfer this infection by carrying it on their fur.
Due to athlete’s foot being an infection that is contagious and can travel from one member of the family to another, we suggest no one shares toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, shaving cream and any other toiletries.
Shoes especially trainers can be a problem if you have feet that are normally sweaty. Try to wear shoes that are made out of a natural fiber.
If weather is warm enough try wearing open sandals to let fresh air circulate in and around your feet. Consider taking relevant natural medicine.
