Can Pets Cause Athlete’s Foot?
You may think common pet dander is a minor inconvenience that comes with having family pets. However, fungi can easily travel on your pet’s dander, making it a big deal for your toes. Walking barefoot in a home with pet dander can put you at risk for contracting a foot infection like Athlete’s foot.*
Keep your feet fungi-free by vacuuming your floors regularly and wearing slippers inside the house. Also, regularly wash your pet with anti-dander shampoo to reduce falling flakes.
