Prevention and Treatment
Wear light, moisture-wicking, synthetic (not cotton) socks, after you run, change out of your soggy socks and shoes and slip into dry after-sport shoes before you go for coffee or run errands.
Don't stash your sweaty pair inside a dark gym bag or your trunk where they can't air out.
You can also sprinkle antifungal powder on your feet before running.
Apply an antifungal cream for at least four weeks, even if symptoms appear to be gone in half that time, to make sure the infection is gone. Soothe the itch by soaking your feet for 10 minutes in equal portions lukewarm water and apple-cider vinegar (which has antifungal properties). If the condition persists, see a dermatologist, who may prescribe an oral antifungal.
