athletesfootAthletes foot is a fungal infection of the skin. It often has a cracked, peeling appearance and can be very itchy. This condition is common in between toes but can occur on the soles of the feet. Athletes foot is common in feet that become very warm and sweaty.

To minimise the risk of athletes foot, feet should be washed daily and particular attention to drying in between toes. Feet should be able to breathe, especially when playing sport, so 100% cotton socks are advised.

There are various treatments for athletes foot which a podiatrist can advise on during an appointment.
