Itchy Athlete’s Foot

athletes footAthlete’s foot is a skin infection caused by a fungus that thrives in a dark, moist, warm environment such as a shoe. Fungus thrives in damp areas such as swimming pools, showers, and locker rooms. Since we sweat twenty times more on our palms and soles than other parts of the body, fungus loves to stay on our feet. Athlete’s foot usually produces itchy, dry, scaling skin. It is commonly seen on the soles of the feet and in between the toes. [1]

Keep your feet as dry as possible after a sporting event or shower. If your feet sweat a lot, you may need to change your socks and shoes during the day. Use anti-fungal powders in the shoes while not being used and do not wear the same shoes two days in a row.
