Athlete’s Foot

Athlete’s Foot – medically known as Tinea Pedis –  is a skin condition affecting the feet caused by a fungal infection. It usually occurs between the toes but in some cases it can spread to the whole underside of the foot, sometimes resulting in cracked skin or blisters.

Tinea Pedis is spread by coming into direct contact with the fungus or encountering it in the environment, for example at swimming pools or gym changing rooms.

It can cause the feet to become inflamed, itchy and cracked and complications can arise if bacterial infections enter through breaks in the skin. If left untreated for too long to fungal infection can spread to the toenails.

 Management: Our podiatrist can advise on the latest treatments for athlete’s foot and treat any of the related complications such as cracked skin or blisters.
