What is a Foot Fungal Infection?

It’s estimated that fungal skin infections affect up to 30% of the population, with “athlete’s foot” being the most common type. Symptoms include itchy, peeling skin between the toes, a rash with small brown-red spots, or dry, eczema-like patches with inflammation. In severe cases, it may appear as chalky deposits on the skin. This infection can spread to other areas of the body and requires prompt treatment. 

What Causes a Fungal Foot Infection?

Our skin naturally hosts a layer of fungi known as dermatophytes. While harmless in small numbers, under certain conditions, they can proliferate and cause discomfort. This fungus thrives in warm, moist environments like showers and public pools. It spreads easily through person-to-person contact or by sharing towels and socks.

What are the risks if the condition is left untreated?

Leaving the fungal infection untreated can lead to its spread to other parts of the body. It may result in secondary bacterial infections like cellulitis, especially if the skin is damaged or broken. Additionally, the infection can extend to the toenails and fingernails. Therefore, prompt treatment of the fungal infection is crucial.

What can a Podiatrist do for you in a clinic?

The Podiatrist will diagnose the infection and recommend an appropriate medication.
