Athlete’s foot is a fungal infection that typically affects your toes however if it is left untreated, it may spread to other areas of the foot and to the toenails.
The fungus ‘Tinea Pedis’ flourishes in warm and moist environments and is contagious.
Therefore, it is important not to walk around barefoot if you are a sufferer in order to prevent the infection spreading to others.
When infected, the skin between your toes usually appears red and itchy which later becomes white, inflamed and weepy. The skin may also crack and peel.

First steps sufferers should take to treat athlete’s foot is to wash the feet daily with soap and dry thoroughly. In addition, you can buy OTC fungicidal treatments such as Daktarin, Canesten, Lamisil etc. Please read the patient information leaflet before buying these medicines to confirm suitability.
