What is it and what are the symptoms?
Athlete’s Foot (also known as Tinea Pedis) is a fungal infection of the foot that presents as a rash and is often found between the toes or on the bottom of the feet.
Symptoms of Athlete’s Foot include:
- Dry, red, scaly and flaky skin.
- White, soggy, cracked skin.
- The affected skin may be covered in small blisters.
What causes Athlete’s Foot?
Excessive moisture, usually sweat, and lack of airflow around the feet make people more prone to fungal infections. This often occurs while the feet are confined within tight-fitting shoes.
