Athletes FootThe first sign of Athlete’s Foot is often itching. Usually found between the toes, the site of this common foot infection is likely to become inflamed, moist and white. Eventually the skin will start to peel, flake and crack. Infectious, it can spread to other parts of the feet or body and can even lead to fungal infections of the nails, so treatment is essential.
Fungal infections thrive in warm, moist conditions.
After washing your feet, dry them thoroughly, particularly between the toes. Put the towel in the wash, before using it again!
Don't forget to apply powder or spray inside your shoes since the fungus can survive there and re-infect your feet. In swimming pools or gyms, avoid contact with damp floors by wearing flip-flops.
Treat your feet to a fresh pair of cotton socks every day.
Also comfortable leather shoes that allow your feet to breathe are a good idea.
