Athlete's Foot: What Is It and How To Treat It

Athlete’s foot is a fungal infection that causes itchy, scaly, red rashes, usually on the tops and sides of the foot. This is the same fungus that causes fungal toenails, ringworm, and other skin infections. It can spread from one part of your body to another, especially if you scratch it, so you definitely want to treat your athlete’s foot as soon as possible.

As soon as you see signs of athlete’s foot, give us a call. The sooner the condition is identified and properly treated, the easier and more comfortable a time you will have clearing it up. Whatever you do, don’t wait for it to disappear on its own; it’s too stubborn an infection for that. Whenever you detect any strange changes in your skin and toenails, never hesitate to give us a call. We will always be ready to get to the root of what’s going on and set you on the path to effective recovery.
