How to Prevent Tinea Versicolor and Other Fungal Skin Infections

It’s that time of the year again that all of us with sensitive skin dread. Profuse sweating, humid weather and sweaty underwear are an everyday problem. They can lead to tinea versicolor and other nasty fungal infections.

Steps to Follow: 

However, there are a few simple steps that I personally follow, and I advise you to follow as well if you have sensitive skin, in order to avoid fungal infections. First and foremost, avoid public showers and pools. 

We all like to go swimming at the gym or at the public pool every once in a while, and we all feel like we have to shower after bathing in the ocean. But this summer, try to avoid doing these things, as they make you susceptible to tinea versicolor, tinea pedis (athlete’s foot), and other fungal skin infections that can make summer unpleasant. Or if you absolutely must partake in those activities, make sure you wash yourself with clean water properly as soon as possible.

Next, ensure you wear clothes that let your body breathe. This includes wearing open-toed shoes whenever possible, and light clothing that’s clothing that’s made of breathable fabrics.

This will also make the hot and humid weather more bearable. Moreover, wear loose-fitting underwear and change it as soon as you go home if you’ve been sweating throughout the day. Cotton underwear is typically preferred, as synthetic materials usually cause more sweating.

Additionally, try maintaining good hygiene. Wash your hands regularly, and shower more frequently. It’s important to wash the sweat and dirt that your body accumulates throughout the day. Simply put, the better you maintain your hygiene. The lesser the chances will be of contacting fungal skin infections like tinea versicolor, tinea pedis, jock itch, impetigo, genital infections, etc.
