What is Athlete's Foot

Athlete's foot (Tinea Pedis) is a fungal infection of the skin of the foot. Most athlete's foot is caused by one of two types of fungus.

  • Trichophyton mentagrophytes often causes toe web or vesicular (blister like) infections. The infection appears suddenly, is severe, and is easily treated.

  • Trichophyton rub rum often causes moccasin-type infections. This condition lasts for a long time (chronic) and is difficult to treat.

Preventing Athlete's Foot

 

  • Avoiding walking barefoot

  • Feet should be washed every day with soap and water and thoroughly dried, including between the toes.

  • Feet should be kept as dry as possible.

  • If your feet sweat a lot you may need to change your socks during the day.

  • Anti-fungal powders, sprays, and/or creams are often utilized to treat athlete's foot

  • Good foot hygiene can help reduce the spread of the fungus.

Chronic Athlete's Foot Risks

 

  • Infection of the skin and need for oral antibiotics

  • Risk of bone infection and toe amputation
