Have Athletes Foot Fungus?
It is hard when backpacking to keep your foot hygiene up. Fortunately Chile's copper industry is working on the answer.

"In clothes there is another venue ... where it has excellent anti-fungus qualities," he said.

Codelco is already working with the private sector to market socks, towels, pillow cases and even underwear sewn with copper fibers that fight fungi and even help combat acne.

Don't know how copper socks will feel but it might be worth a try.
