Trimming and cleaning your nails regularly helps keep your nails clean, which can help prevent infection. Always use your own sterilized nail clipper to cut your nails and do not share these personal nail care tools with others.   Filing down thick areas on your nail can also help prevent fungus. It’s important to keep your feet and hands dry, especially in between fingers and toes after bathing.
