Rainy Season & Fungi growth on ur feet 5 things you need to know

  1. Air out your shoes / socks, do not keep them on too long if you happen to step on a puddle
  2. Dry / scaling feet or cracks between the toes, smelly, time to see your podiatrist
  3. Diabetics with redness or cracks in the feet must see a doctor or risk infections and amputations
  4. Rotate your shoes have at least 2 pairs to alternate daily humidity and wet weather is a great breeding ground for fungi
  5. As a preventative, you can use baby powder or foot powder between your toes every day to keep the sweat from becoming a problem. 

If you ignore your fungal infection, you can colonize bacteria and cause a bacterial cellulitis that can be life threatening and difficult to treat, even requiring IV antibiotics at times.
