Fungus Likes Spring
Fungus is everywhere where there is moisture combined with warmth. You may have waited until spring to return to swimming. After all, cold weather doesn’t make you long for a dip in a pool. However, areas around public pools, showers, and hot tubs can be teeming with bacteria that cause foot fungus. So, be sure to be thorough about washing and drying your feet after your swim or your laze in the Jacuzzi. When your feet are dry, apply an anti-fungal product especially around your toenails and between your toes. Here’s what the Mayo Clinic has to say about foot fungus.
