The fungus thrives where it is moist and hot. There are several things you can do to prevent athlete's foot:
- Wash your feet every day and dry thoroughly, even between the toes.
- Change socks every day.
- Preferably use socks that are not so tight.
- Avoid tight shoes and rubber boots.
- Use slippers in swimming pools and changing rooms.
- Wash socks at 60 degrees.
We recommend that you get a pair of shoes with enhanced breathability. The JALAS ® Exalter Shoe Collection has Innovative mesh-covered ventilation slots and breathable polyester lining ensure great breathability to keep the foot dry, cool and comfortable all day long.
