How do I combat athlete's foot?
BATTLING ATHLETES FOOT
I have been waging war against athlete's foot for quite some time. What is the best way to disinfect socks and towels to reduce the risk of transmitting spores? I keep reinfecting myself over and over. I treat the areas between the toes with oxiconazole nitrate cream, I wash vigorously to remove loose skin cells, and I even use separate foot towels to dry off. I wear sandals whenever possible for better ventilation, and wash the towels and my socks in extremely hot water with bleach.
