Athlete’s foot is a fungal infection that usually begins between the toes. It occurs most commonly in people whose feet have become very sweaty while confined within tight-fitting shoes.
Signs and symptoms of athlete’s foot include a scaly rash that usually causes itching, stinging and burning. Athlete’s foot is contagious and can be spread via contaminated floors, towels or clothing.
Athlete’s foot is closely related to other fungal infections such as ringworm and jock itch. It can be treated with over-the-counter antifungal medications, but the infection often recurs. Prescription medications also are available.
(tinea pedis) Most often begins between the toes, in a damp environment
If your athlete’s foot is mild, your doctor may suggest using an over-the-counter antifungal ointment, lotion, powder or spray. If your athlete’s foot doesn’t respond, you may need a prescription-strength medication to apply to your feet. Severe infections may require antifungal pills that you take by mouth.
I’d give him TEN stars if I could! He is amazing! I found Dr Moore after having an issue with contact dermatitis on my foot. He was literally the first doctor listed within 10 miles that took my insurance. I’m always leery of going with the first doc I find, but in this case, boy did I hit the jackpot!! He is a great doc with an amazing bedside manner! I would highly recommend him to anyone! I’ve even got my husband going to him too! He loves him as well!
