Sweating it out at the gym works wonders for personal fitness and body shape based on the intensity of your workout. But apart from the dedication and perseverance required, there are few precautions to be taken to ensure that overall well being goes hand in hand with physical fitness.

Tight clothes are popular as workout gear for a number of reasons including convenience for certain exercises. But wearing such clothes drenched in sweat for a long time after exercising can also take a toll on personal hygiene.

 

Moving around in sweaty clothes for a while after an intense workout can expose people to skin conditions and bacterial infections. Apart from yeast infection, inflammation of the head of the penis is a common condition caused by it among men.

Wearing tight clothes can promote sweating and development of fungus that feeds on dead skin cells, hair and nails. This can cause jock itch and a number of other infections.

Cotton is a fabric that can reduce chances of fungal infections since it is breathable, prevents overheating and absorbs water away from the skin.
