Athlete’s Foot (Foot Fungus)

  • The athlete’s foot is a common fungal infection.
  • It is called Athlete’s foot since it is commonly seen in athletes.
  • Walking barefoot in public places such as locker rooms can cause this infection. This condition is contagious and is sometimes hard to cure.
  • This is especially true if the affected person suffers from conditions that weaken the immune system.
  • If you have dry, itchy skin on the bottom of your foot, you might have Athlete’s foot.

Dry Cracked Skin

  • Skin usually relies on oil-producing glands (sebaceous glands) as a source of moisture.
  • However, the skin of the feet relies on sweat glands (eccrine and apocrine glands) and therefore is more prone to dryness.

Foot Psoriasis :

  • Foot psoriasis is an autoimmune disease characterized by the rapid multiplication of skin cells on the foot and other areas of the body.
  • As a result, skin cells build up on the feet and cause the formation of scales and thick white or silver patches that are dry, itchy, and painful.
  • Unlike athlete’s foot, fungi do not cause psoriasis.
  • Psoriasis is a genetic condition that is not contagious.

Toenail Psoriasis

  • Same as foot psoriasis, toenail psoriasis is a genetically inherited autoimmune disease that causes the overproduction of cells and thickening of tissue.
  • Toenail psoriasis is not as common as fingernail psoriasis.
  • Fungal infection usually causes thickening of toenails, but psoriasis cannot be completely ruled out as a cause of toenail thickening and pain.
