Can I Get A Yeast Infection From A Public Shower?

August 14, 2019

Good day, Eric Bakker, naturopath, author
of Candida Crusher. And another question for you coming your way regarding yeast infections. Can I get a yeast infection from a public
shower? I’m not sure what you mean by yeast infection
for a public shower, but I think that you mean an athlete’s foot or toenail fungus.
You’re certainly more susceptible if you’re going to walk around bare foot in public facilities,
particularly if you don’t dry your feet properly and put clean socks on. I’ve been involved in gym for many years of
my life and have never had athlete’s foot from the gym. I have known people who’ve complained
to me about athlete’s foot who frequent gyms. I tell you what, I think a key thing in this
situation is to make sure that you always have clean cotton socks, you have multiple
pairs of shoes, you rotate shoes, and when you come home, you take those socks and shoes
off. You don’t walk around with socks a lot. It’s people who tend to wear sneakers or shoes
and socks all the time and particularly guys who drink beer or eat pizza or have yeasty
or sweet foods who tend to have smelly sort of sweaty bodies and don’t dry themselves
properly. They’re much more prone to a fungal yeast infection of the feet. So I don’t think you would catch other kinds
of yeast infections from showers apart from infections of the lower extremities. You wouldn’t
get a vaginal infection from a public shower nor would you get a throat infection or a
mouth infection. So I think we’re talking about a foot infection. So if you’re concerned
and you’ve been to a public shower, make sure you dry your feet properly and put clean cotton
socks on. And a clever trick is to put one or two drops of tea tree oil in your shoe;
rub them around your feet. And the best tea tree oil is the Australian tea tree oil. Don’t
be fooled. Melaleuca alternifolia, or the Australian tea tree oil, is the only tea tree
oil to use. There are a lot of scam products on the market that claim to be Australian
tea tree oil, but they’re not. So make sure it’s the real Aussie tea tree oil. So I hope that answers your question about
the infections in the public showers.
