Toenails are usually easier to care for than fingernails, since they're never used as tools and thus don't crack or break as often. However, here are some tips on how to care for them:
1. Avoid walking barefoot in wet areas like public showers or pools to avoid fungal infections.
2. Change shoes, socks, and pantyhose daily.
3. Avoid very tight shoes and hose.
4. Avoid sharing towels, even with members of your family, to reduce the risk of sharing infections.
