Keep your feet clean and dry
Healthy feet start with good hygiene. Thoroughly clean and scrub your feet with soap and water when you bathe. Afterward, dry them well. Fungal organisms love moisture, so depriving them of any wetness will make it more difficult for them to thrive. Be sure to dry well between each individual toe, says Dr. Kurtz. Any excess moisture between the toes can create a great environment for a fungal infection to begin.
