It’s officially spring and the grass and trees are coming back to life after their winter naps, so there’s a lot of green going around this month! What about yellow, though? If you’re noticing your toenails are turning as yellow as your lawn used to be, we hate to break it to you but toenail fungus has found you, and here’s how:
Remember that time after your workout when you hit the gym shower barefoot? Fungi love that!
You know when you forgot your towel at yoga so you borrowed your friend’s? If your buddy had yellow nails, then the fungus just got passed on to you!
Hit the nail salon to prep your feet for sandals, but had an itsy-bitsy scratch on your toe? Oops! Even a small opening in the skin is enough to tell fungus, “Come on in!”
Can’t stop wearing your favorite shoes? If you don’t give ‘em a break so they can dry out some, you’re asking for fungus trouble.
If you haven’t been diligent about keeping your feet clean and dry, if you don’t change out of sweaty socks, and don’t bother treating shoes and feet with anti-fungal spray or powder…these are all additional reasons toenail fungus may have happened to find you. So now what do you do?
