Athlete's foot is actually a fungal infection that affects the skin of your feet. It most commonly occurs on the bottom of the feet or in between the toes. The fungus is everywhere, but it specifically thrives when the environment is right; for example dark, moist, enclosed environments like a gym shoe or work shoes. It may appear as dry, flaky, cracked skin, red itchy skin, or even appear as small rashes between the toes or on the bottom of your feet. If you think you may have athlete's foot, you want to treat it as soon as possible to prevent it from worsening or affecting the other foot. Our doctors will recommend a product we carry in our office, Tolcylen cream, to use in addition to treating your shoes with an antimicrobial shoe spray for first line treatment. If you think you may have athlete's foot or there is a skin condition you are not sure about on your feet, make an appointment to see one of our doctors.
