Q: Dear Dr. Mao,
Which athlete’s foot formula is safe for someone who is trying to get pregnant?
A: Topical products made of natural products that do not contain hormonal additives should be fine. Both the Sha Hsein Chin ointment and the Tujin anti-fungal liniment are effective. Also keep your feet dry by using talcum powder after every shower, wear lightweight airy shoes, and expose your toes and webs of toes to sunlight at least 15 minutes per day.
