Health Tip: Preventing Toenail Fungus

(HealthDayNews) -- Ugly, discolored toe nails may be a sign of a fungal infection. Besides being embarrassing, untreated fungal infections can spread.
Guard yourself against toenail fungus with these tips from the American Podiatric Medical Association:
· Wash your feet regularly with soap and water.
· Dry them thoroughly.
· Make sure your shoes fit properly.
· Wear shower shoes in public areas.
· Change socks, hosiery, even shoes, daily.
· Clip toenails straight across so the nail doesn't extend past the tip of the toe.
· Use a recommended foot powder talcum, not starch.
· Wear socks made of synthetic fiber.
