To prevent scalp fungal infection, do not use very old and infested combs, brushes and such other hair care products. If you have groin fungal infection (Jock itch) and athlete’s foot together, then treating groin infection alone will not be sufficient. The foot infection can spread to groin and jock itch may recur. Do not share cloth, sports instruments, towels with others Wash thoroughly after suspected skin contact Avoid tight-fitting cloths. Change your socks and underwear repeatedly, if needed. After bath, make sure to dry the skin completely. If you have athlete’s foot, put your socks on before your underwear so that the infection does not spread. Avoid using oily skin products. Reduce your exposure to the afternoon sun. Increased sweating causes worsening of infection. Wear cotton cloth, which absorbs the sweat and moisture completely.
