    You may be able to prevent athlete's foot:

    • Keep your feet clean and dry.
    • Dry between your toes after swimming or bathing. Use a hair dryer.
    • Wear shoes or sandals that allow air to circulate around your feet.
    • Use talcum powder or an antifungal powder on your feet.
    • Allow shoes to dry for 24 hours before you wear them again.
    • Wear socks to absorb sweat. White socks do not prevent athlete's foot.
    • Wear a clean pair of socks every day.
    • Wear thongs or shower sandals in public pools and showers.
