FOOT FUNGAL INFECTIONS

ACCORDING TO DOCTOR CAROLYN McALOON, CALIFORNIA PODIATRIST AND SPOKESWOMAN FOR THE AMERICAN PODIATRIC MEDICAL ASSOCIATION (APAM).  IF YOU NOTICE YOUR TOENAIL LOOKS YELLOW, HAS WHITE MARKS ON IT, OR CONTAINS DEBRIS UNDERNEATH, CHANCES ARE A FUNGUS IS HANGING OUT UNDER YOUR NAIL.  IT IS A HIGHLY CONTAGIOUS INFECTION THAT'S TRANSMITTED FROM FOOT TO FOOT, PARTICULARILY IN GERMY HOTBEDS LIKE NAIL SALONS AND GYMS.  IT IS USUALLY NOT PAINFUL, ALTHOUGH WEARING A SHOE THAT'S PRESSING ON THE INFECTED AREA CAN IRRITATE IT.  FUNGI THRIVE IN DARK, WET, WARM AREAS.  TO PREVENT ONE FROM TAKING HOLD, WEAR SHOES OF BREATHABLE FABRICS, LIKE LEATHER OR CANVAS AND BE SURE TO TAKE OFF YOUR SOCKS AND SHOES TO AIR OUT YOUR FEET AFTR EXERCISING OR WORKING ALL DAY.  WE WILL DISCUSS FUNGAL TREATMENTS TOMORROW IN MY BLOG.  MARZ
