Can I go to my swimming class if I have a nail fungal infection?
Hello, I am a 17 years old male. I have a fungal infection in my left toe. I have a swimming competition in the coming week. What should I do? Is it recommended to get into the pool with a nail fungal infection or not? Can I go to my swimming class if I have a nail fungal infection?
@max Hello, it is recommended not to go for a swimming class if you have a toe fungal infection. Toenail fungus is a contagious fungal skin infection that can be spread directly or indirectly. It is most commonly spread in warm, moist environments. These locations typically include public swimming pools, communal showers, and gyms. Preventing nail fungus infections requires hygiene. You can take precautions like keeping nails short, dry, and clean, washing hands after touching infected nails, wearing shoes or sandals in public places, and avoiding sharing shoes and socks. Thank you.
