Athletes Foot

Athlete’s Foot is a common skin infection on the foot caused by fungus, and occurs most often between the toes.  It can be caused by walking barefoot in public places as well as wearing non-moisture wicking socks.  Symptoms include itching, stinging and burning between the toes; cracking and peeling skin on the feet as well as blisters on the feet that itch.

Athlete’s Foot is not a serious condition, but sometimes can be difficult to cure. In minor cases, Athlete’s Foot can be treated with over the counter antifungal medications. In more severe cases, doctors may prescribe oral and/or topical antifungal medications. In either case, when infected, keep feet dry and clean.
