Athletes Foot Treatment, Causes, and Symptoms
About Athlete’s Foot
Athlete’s foot (or tinea pedis) is a mildly contagious, relatively common skin disease of the foot caused by a fungus, usually occurring between the toes. The fungus most commonly attacks the feet because shoes create a warm, dark, and humid environment which encourages fungus growth. The signs and symptoms of athlete’s foot, singly or combined, include the following:
- Dry skin
- Itching and burning, which may increase as the infection spreads
Athlete’s foot may spread to the soles of the feet and to the toenails. It can be spread to other parts of the body, notably the groin and underarms, by those who scratch the infection and then touch themselves elsewhere. The organisms causing athlete’s foot may persist for long periods, and can cause severe itch and a burning sensation. In certain advanced situations, athlete's foot can be hard to treat. In those cases, you may need to go to a doctor who will give you an official diagnosis and a more aggressive treatment plan for your foot rash.
CAUSES OF ATHLETE'S FOOT
Athlete’s foot is caused by the same fungus which causes other skin diseases such as ringworm and jock itch. This fungus thrives in warm, damp conditions where it can spread and multiply. This explains why athlete’s foot is so common. If a patient is walking around-sweating-in closed toe shoes all day then they’re creating the perfect environment mixture for this fungus to grow.
It’s important to know that athlete’s foot is contagious and can be spread from person to person. All it takes is contact with an infected person or contact with a contaminated service. Towels, floors, and shoes all count as contaminated services. There are several factors that will increase your chances of developing athlete’s foot.
Risk factors for athlete’s foot include:
- Being male
- Wearing damp socks
- Wearing tight-fitting shoes
- Sharing personal effects with someone who’s affected by athlete’s foot
- Coming in contact with surfaces that someone with athlete’s foot has also touched
- Walking barefoot in public areas in general
TREATMENTS FOR ATHLETE’S FOOT
The best athlete’s foot treatment method is prevention. You can prevent athlete’s foot by following good general health and hygiene practices like washing thoroughly after exercise, removing damp clothing and socks, and maintaining a healthy diet. Finding a good antifungal ointment can help, or a doctor may prescribe an over-the-counter solution or give additional medical advice or athlete’s foot treatment suggestions.
