There are preventative measures you can follow to prevent this infection from coming back.

Ensure you:

  • dry your feet thoroughly after washing them especially in between the toes
  • use a separate towel for your feet and wash this regularly
  • take your shoes off when at home
  • change your socks everyday

Ensure you DONT:

  • scratch affected skin as the infection can spread to other parts of the body
  • walk around barefoot in public changing rooms and showers
  • share towels, socks or shoes with people
  • wear the same pair of shoes for more than 2 days in a row
  • wear shoes that make your feet hot and sweaty
