What are the best socks for athletes foot is a question that everybody who has athletes foot wants to know and I have the answer. There are some other things you need to know as well and I'll be sharing those further down in the article. For now, let's get right into what you want to know about athletes foot and socks. One of the best types of socks for athletes foot is diabetic socks. Yes, they do cost more, but they're the best, so this is to be expected. You might be wondering how much more and I am going to tell you. The cost of a quality pair of diabetic socks is in the $10-$15 range.
There are a couple of other choices for socks for athletes foot as well and they are based on fabric blends. The first type of socks is made of 80-90% cotton and 10-20% synthetic blend. Just so that you know this blend is also the same blend that many diabetic sock manufacturers use. The second type is socks made from moisture wicking fibers like nylon, acrylic and spandex and are also antibacterial and antifungal. If you haven't already guessed the first type is designed more for every day wear and the second for athletic activities and working out. Even after athletes foot is gone it's a good idea to keep this on going.
In addition to buying the best socks for athletes foot make sure you put on a clean pair every day and when you work out or do some form of strenuous activity that makes feet sweaty, then you need to change socks immediately afterward, so that sweat does not stay on any longer than need be. In fact, you should rinse or wash feet and dry them completely before putting on clean socks. Another good habit to get into is to alternate shoes often and not wear the same pair of shoes day after day. Lastly, don't share shoes or go barefoot in locker rooms or any public place where others walk barefoot and always dry feet completely.
When you combine the best socks for athletes foot with these other prevention tips athletes foot will be gone in no time and if you keep it up it won't come back.
