Foot fungus. What is it and how to prevent them.
It is very important to take care of the whole body, and we do it constantly, but we must bear in mind that the feet support the entire weight of the body, and it is very important to take good care of them.
We must be careful with the friction of the shoes that our feet continually suffer and the fact that you are always wrapped in socks or stockings, which often leads to sweat.
Today in the blog we will talk about mushrooms. Fungi can appear at any time of the year, but in summer it is the more cases we usually have, since heat, sweating and contact with water are factors that facilitate their development.
Where do mushrooms settle?
They usually appear on the toes, soles, or nails, and are quite contagious. The most common signs to know if we have fungus or not are:
-Itchy skin -Redness in certain areas of the foot
-The nail changes in thickness or color
-Wrinkled, peeling or cracked skin.
-Unusual bad smell
The most common types of mushrooms are:
-Athlete's foot is an infection that appears between the toes on the sole of the foot.
- Ringworm of the nails: It is an infection caused by a type of fungus different from athlete's foot.
It appears in young people normally, who do sports and who wear sports shoes frequently.
-Paronychia is a special form of nail fungus. First, a swelling appears in the fold around the nail, it usually turns red and hurts (pus may appear), then it can spread to the other nails.
How to prevent fungi:
-Do not go barefoot in changing rooms, swimming pools, public showers, etc.
-Use of flip flops
-Correct foot hygiene.
-Change shoes frequently
-Choice of good socks, preferably cotton.
