The fungus actively breeds in the environment of neutral or poorly alkaline. Therefore, strong perspiration is the first and most important risk factor of emergence of a fungus standing, in the area where integuments are constantly closed. The fungus maintains rather low temperatures: even after the fungus is frozen, it can remain an infestant. In turn, high temperatures influence a fungus negatively: at a temperature of 75 degrees the fungus perishes approximately in 15 minutes. In the course of boiling the fungus perishes in 3–5 minutes. Therefore, at danger of infection with fungus diseases it is possible to apply influence of high temperatures to disinfection. So, the clothes and linen of the patient which adjoined to the affected skin are recommended to be boiled and ironed carefully. Also one-percentage solution of formalin in which the fungus perishes approximately in twenty minutes is applied to disinfection of footwear.

It is necessary to consider that fungi which are causative agents of mycoses maintain drying. In the course of drying growth of fungi only for a certain time is late. But in the scales of skin or hair lost by the infected person, the fungus can remain capable to life several years. And if such particle gets to optimum conditions for development of a fungus, then the activator can find ability to breed and raise again.
