If you have athlete's foot, what you wear on your feet can have a huge impact. While effective treatments for foot fungus are out there, it's always best practice to wear clean, dry footwear. This includes socks!

Wearing socks made of synthetic fibers can help wick away moisture, keeping your feet dry and inhibiting the growth of foot fungus. Look for nylon, polyester, and acrylic socks if you suffer from athlete's foot, and stay away from wool and cotton.
