What do sweaty feet have to do with athlete's foot?


The fungus that causes athlete's foot, tinea pedis, thrives in damp environments.  When your feet are sweaty, it is a perfect environment for the fungus to grow.  So keeping your feet dry with socks that have a moisture-wicking material, such as Feetures socks, and changing your socks often will help keep your feet dry.  For a treatment plan and proper diagnosis of athlete's foot, make an appointment with one of our doctors from Prairie Path Foot and Ankle Clinic today.
