How to Maintain Good Hygiene
Athletes foot is caused by a fungus which thrives in warm, damp places. Wearing shoes without socks increases your chance of contracting this fungus. Athletes who do not change their wet socks after they are done with sports also run the risk of picking up this affliction. If you play recreational sports, consider bringing an extra pair of socks to your game or match so you can keep your feet dry if the team or foursome goes out for pizza or a beer after the nights activity. If you wear shoes without socks, line the shoes with an absorbent pad and/or use foot powder each time you wear them.
