Fungal nail infections often come back after treatment. It is important
to take steps to prevent this.
- Before bed, wash and dry your feet carefully.
- Wear sandals or roomy shoes made of materials that allow
moisture to escape. Let shoes dry for 24 hours before you wear them
- Wear socks. Change them if your feet get sweaty.
- Do not share nail files or clippers, socks, towels, or other
- Wear flip-flops or shower sandals in wet public areas, such as
locker rooms or showers.
