Athlete's Foot

 

Typically contracted in damp communal places such as public pools, locker rooms or showers, athlete’s foot is a highly contagious, persistent ailment caused by fungal growth on the feet. It can be located any area of the foot but the most commonly affected area is between the toes.

Athlete’s foot often first appears as an itchy red rash, typically beginning between the fourth and fifth toe. If left untreated, the skin may become highly sensitive to the touch. If allowed to progress, the condition can result in white, peeling skin and a milky discharge.

It is important to treat Athlete’s foot at the first sign of infection as the body can become vulnerable to other bacterial infections large cracks occur in the skin. The infection can also be transmitted to other parts of the body through bedding and clothes. Patients with serious cases of athlete’s foot may develop a rash that covers the sole of the foot. Known as “moccasin foot,” this manifestation of Athlete’s foot creates extremely scaly, thick and rough skin on the bottom of the foot.

If you are experiencing the symptoms of Athlete’s foot, contact us today for effective treatment options. Early treatment will lessen the risk of exposure to others and alleviate the painful symptoms associated with this condition.
