While you probably know that wearing shoes on wet, germ-filled surfaces will decrease your chances of contracting the infection, you might not be aware that a wide variety of fungi can cause athlete’s foot, says Richard Braver, DPM, a podiatrist at Active Foot & Ankle Care, LLC in Englewood and Fair Lawn, New Jersey. And these fungi can lurk almost anywhere.

Pets shed tiny specks of skin called dander. No biggie, right? For your toes, it is. Fungi easily travels on your pet’s dander throughout your home, Braver says. As you walk barefoot through your rooms, the dander can attach to your soles and cause an infection. To keep your feet fungi-free at home, regularly wash your pet with an anti-dander shampoo like Dander-Out to minimize flakes, suggests Braver. Also, frequently vacuum your floors and wear slippers.
