Athlete?s food can be prevented and definitely can be cured. Before looking into the medication for Athlete?s foot, let us first look into the different preventive measures to be remembered to avoid getting Athlete?s Foot. Let us start off with the simple fact and that is to avoid walking barefoot.
Of course, wear comfortable shoes when you are on the go and when you get home ready to slip on those slippers. There should be slippers to be used only outside of the house and another pair exclusively for roaming around inside the house. Even when taking a shower, always use shower shoes or shower slippers.
Talcum powder is a very powerful vanity item because it reduces perspiration. Always use it most especially before doing any activity that will surely leave you perspiring. You can use it minimally everyday just to make sure you will not as perspire as much when commuting or walking to and from work. From now on, talcum powder should be in the list of care items to buy.
The best pair of shoes to buy is a pair that is both light and airy. Lightness is of course highly essential because trudging along many flights of stairs or covering long distances will not be as tiresome when you are wearing the right footwear. Checking your shoes in relation to how it allows air to come in through it is also good. If ever you need to wear socks, make sure you change when you perspire heavily or whenever you feel uncomfortable.
If all these measures failed and you now have to deal with Athlete?s Foot then go to the nearest drug store because there are over the counter topical and oral medications available. You can ask for suggestions from your pharmacists which brands to buy but it does not really matter because most of these brands as long as they are not fake meds have the same working ingredients.
These medications will not take effect though if you do not clean your feet regularly. There are chances that these medications will not take effect because of your not being able to practice good hygiene. So before applying any medicine or even aside from taking medicines, make sure that you also clean your feet properly with soap and water as constantly as needed. After washing, make sure to dry both feet as well. Damp feet are easily prone to Athlete?s Foot.
