Athlete's foot is a cutaneous infection sustained by dermatophyte fungi, which attack the hairless skin, expecially under the feet and between the toes. Symptoms include itching, flaking and fissuring of the skin. It manifests in 3 ways:

  • the skin between the toes may appear macerated (white) & soggy
  • the soles of the feet may become dry & scarely
  • the skin all over the foot may become red and vesicular eruptions may appear

How do you contract athlete's foot?

15-20% of the population suffers from athlete's foot. Sufferers typically include athletes and the elderly when their immune system is weakened or compromised. The infection is aided by various situations, such as:

  • Skin maceration related to heat & humidity: tight and non-breathable footwear (sports shoes or work shoes).
  • Walking in locker rooms, gyms, swimming pools and sports environments.
  • Reduces peripheral blood circulation due to vascular problems, diabetes, or if you are suffering from another fungal infection, such as onychomycosis.

It is important to speak to your pharmacist or doctor to learn the exact reason for the phenomenon.


Why treat athlete's foot?

It is important to treat athlete's foot directly as it is progressive and might even spread to other parts of the body or other people. If not treated properly and promptly, athlete's foot can also be very stubborn and will remain a problem if left untreated. Besides the danger of spreading, athlete's foot can also result in a lot of personal irritation, because of the itch or dryness athlete's foot causes.
