Athlete’s Foot

Tinea pedis, commonly known as Athlete’s foot, is a superficial skin infection of the outer layer of skin or epidermis.  Unfortunately, this is a misnomer as this infection is not confined to just athlete’s. It is caused by the overgrowth of fungus, yeast, mold, or a combination of these organisms.


Most often it presents as dry flaking skin around the outside of the foot or white macerated skin between the toes without other symptoms.  In more severe cases the skin can become red and itchy with blisters or pustules arising in cycles. If left untreated it can become super-infected with bacteria.


Over the counter treatments may not be strong enough to eradicate Athlete’s foot and a professional evaluation is recommended especially for long standing infections.
