Toenail fungus is caused by fungal bacteria that grows in wet and damp locations.

When taking a shower make sure to fully dry your feet and around your toes before putting socks on and if possible let your feet air out awhile before putting socks on after a shower or bath.

This will help prevent fungal bacteria from growing under your toenails.

You can also use Vinegar or Vicks VapoRub to kill off toenail fungus.
