December 3rd, 2014 | Anti-Fungal, Natural Remedies, Skin care

Athlete’s Foot… it stinks – literally! Athlete’s foot, sometimes referred to as tinea pedi, is a fungal infection that affects the moist, warm areas of your feet… typically between the toes or on the heel. It makes sense to call it “athlete’s foot” because, well, many athletes may experience this. Sweating sneakers, anyone?

There are a number of questions that may come to mind when you hear this term, so we are here with answers.

What causes athlete’s foot?

Athlete’s foot is caused by a fungus called Trichophyton rubrum. This fungus thrives in warm, moist areas (think shower floors, sweaty sneakers, locker rooms, etc.)

What are signs and symptoms of athlete’s foot?

Common signs and symptoms include:

  • Scaling
  • Flaking
  • Itching
  • Burning
  • Rash

In the most extreme cases, the skin may look raw, cracked, blistered, or even pink in color.

How can I prevent athlete’s foot?

There are a number of ways to help prevent athlete’s foot from happening to you. This include:

  • Avoiding public swimming pools and hot tubs
  • Never walk barefoot on public shower floors or locker rooms – no matter how clean it may seem!
  • Never share wet towels or footwear with others
  • Keep sneakers clean and allow wiggle-room when lacing up – breathability is the key
  • Keep your feet clean and dry
  • Wear clean socks

The key is cleanliness and keeping moisture to a minimum. Fungal infections thrive in moist places!
