Precautions to Prevent the contraction of Athletes Foot
Prevention is always better than cure. Athletes Foot is a fungal infection that can be transmitted from person to person generally in areas where people walk barefoot such as swimming pools, showers or even the beach.
The fungi which causes Athletes Foot can live happily on shower floors or any area where bare foot sufferers walk so the beach and swimming pools are areas where most care should be taken.
How to Identify Athletes Foot
The image above depicts a particularly nasty case of Athletes Foot. The skin on the feet will be flake and be scaly and the feet will itch quite badly. In bad cases the skin on the feet may crack leading to painful exposed tissue, swelling and inflammation. If you get a case as bad as this you should consult your GP.
How to Prevent Catching Athletes Foot
Firstly keep the feet as dry as possible because the fungi which causes Athletes Foot thrives in damp conditions. Avoid walking barefoot in high foot-traffic areas where people go barefoot. Wear clean, dry flip-flops or other suitable footwear at the pool or beach. Don’t share towels or footwear.
Further Preventative Measures
Foot hygiene is a key preventative measure. When exposing yourself situations where contraction may be possible when on holiday or a visit to the gym or the pool use the Syrinx Za Deep Cleansing Therapy Bar to deeply clean the feet. The Therapy bar draws toxins from the skin and cleans very thoroughly more than normal soap can.
