Athletes Foot

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014 Innovative Foot and Ankle

Athlete’s foot is a skin infection caused by a fungus. It can be spread to others by a bathtub, shower, clothing or towels. Symptoms include itch, burning, painful cracking, redness, scaly and peeling skin and blisters. If left untreated, it can spread to toenails or even the groin area. Foot fungus can be treated with skin or oral medications. In order to prevent athlete’s foot it is important to keep your feet clean and dry. You should wear clean socks and wear shower shoes before using public swimming, bathing or changing areas.
