Fungal body infection
Hi cyberdoc

I need help knowing what precautions to take to prevent reinfection of a fungal infection. Is washing clothes and bedding in hot water and then powdering shoes and bedding with antifungal powder once a week for the bedding for a month or 2 sufficient? Also how contagious are fungal infections, can they be transferred from say sharing a sofa or computer or are they transferred only in moist conditions!
