  8. 8. Prevention<br />Warmth, humidity, sweating, and poor air circulation all help bring about these fungal infections. But they are contagious, too. Athlete’s foot is believe to be passed on locker room and shower floors, and by sharing footwear and socks; you can acquire tinea versicolor from vinyl surfaces of weight lifting benches; and of course ringworm is contagious through direct contact (usually kids). <br />Because of all these factors, prevention is a matter of both personal hygiene and minimizing contact with potential carriers or contaminated objects. See the chart below for guidelines on prevention.<br />
  9. 9. Treatments for Fungal infections<br />Topical therapy - Used to treat tinea and localised mucocutaneous candidiasis. Not usually successful for infections involving the nail and hair. Topical agents include Azoles (Clotrimazole, miconazole, ketaconazole, econazole) <br />Terbinafine <br />Tolnaftate<br />
