Athlete's foot and nail fungus
It is estimated that over 30% of the population suffers from athlete’s foot or nail fungus. Especially athlete's, people who wear tight shoes and people with poor immune systems (due to age or illness) are susceptible to athlete's foot or nail fungus. Also diabetics, people with psoriasis and people who wear orthopedic shoes have an increased risk. Athlete's foot and nail fungus are caused by bacteria and fungi. These are present in humid areas such as swimming pools, showers and saunas. But moist shoes are also a hotbed of fungi and bacteria.
Using the Shoefresh is not enough to get rid of athlete's foot or nail fungus. We strongly advice to get your feet treated by a podiatrist. There are products that tackle athlete's foot / nail fungus and make your nails healthy again. These products are available at podiatrists, drugstores and pharmacies can you can use them at home yourself. It is not sufficient to only treat your feet and nails. There is a high chance that the infection will come back. Someone with a fungal infection can spread millions of spores, which remain infectious for a very long time.
