What Is Athletes Foot?
Athletes Foot is a skin infection caused by a fungus. Most commonly found on the feet as this provides the ideal conditions for fungus to grow. Typically athlete’s foot occurs between the toes as fungus thrives in damp areas.  It is very contagious and can spread quite quickly; passing from person to person through contaminated towels, footwear etc.

What You Might Experience:

  • Itchiness between the toes which can be red and raw looking
  • The foot can appear to be dry, with an itchy flaky type rash.

How Can It Be Treated?
An antifungal spray or cream will be applied during a routine treatment and recommended by the podiatrist. This will have to be applied to the affected area daily. Advice will also be given on how to stop the infection from returning in the future.
