nail fungus from grungy garden gloves?
Here's something gross for y'all to weigh in on.... I have nail fungus on one toe and I'm sure it is from wearing my horrible, ratty garden shoes too long. They had holes in them and my feet would be almost dirtier after I wore them.
Now I am thinking I might have the beginning of a problem on my fingernails. They are peeling in layers and look just a little strange (not like the disgusting photos I've googled.)
But, like with my shoes, I tend to keep my gardening cover-up stuff too long. My gloves are kind of gross. It makes sense to me that all sorts of microbes live in the soil. Gloves get damp, hot, and dark.
Has anyone else experienced something similar? If so, I'd love to hear what you did.
