Helpful Information About Athlete's Foot

Athlete's foot, also known as tinea pedis, is a common fungal infection of the feet. It is caused by a type of fungus called dermatophytes, which thrive in warm, moist environments. Athlete's foot is most common between the toes, but it can also affect the soles of the feet, the heels, and the sides of the feet.

The symptoms of athlete's foot vary depending on the type of infection:

  • The most common type is interdigital athlete's foot, which causes itching, scaling, and redness between the toes.
  • Vesicular athlete's foot causes blisters between the toes.
  • Scaling athlete's foot causes dry, scaly skin on the soles of the feet.
  • Moccasin athlete's foot causes scaling and redness on the soles and sides of the feet.

Athlete's foot is easily spread through contact with contaminated surfaces, such as floors, towels, and shoes. It can also be spread from person to person.

There are a number of ways to treat athlete's foot:

  • Over-the-counter antifungal creams and powders are effective in most cases.
  • Prescription antifungal medications may be necessary for more severe cases.
  • To help prevent athlete's foot, keep your feet clean and dry.
  • Wear loose-fitting shoes and socks made of breathable materials.
  • Avoid walking barefoot in public places.

Here are some additional tips to prevent athlete's foot:

  • Wash your feet with soap and water daily.
  • Dry your feet thoroughly, especially between the toes.
  • Wear clean, dry socks every day.
  • Avoid wearing the same pair of shoes two days in a row.
  • Let your feet air out as much as possible.
  • Do not share towels or shoes with others.
