Athlete’s Foot

July 13, 2021


I’m going to answer a question about Athlete’s Foot, what is it and how can it be treated?

So athlete’s foot is a type of fungal skin infection caused by a fungus called a dermatophyte. This can present in a number of ways and most commonly it is itchy, dry, red, and scaly. Now it can be difficult to tell this apart from normal, regular dry skin, so I’d recommend seeing a podiatrist to confirm.

Treatment for this is very simple. Using a cream, such as Lamisil can help get rid of the fungal skin infection. There are simple things you can do at home as well, which can help eradicate the infection such as changing your shoes and socks daily and ensuring you dry thoroughly in between the toes.
