It is caused by various types of fungi, primarily belonging to the group called dermatophytes. Here’s some information about the causes and treatment of athlete’s foot:
Causes of Athlete’s Foot:
Fungal infection: Athletes’ foot is highly contagious and can be acquired by contact with the fungi in environments where they thrive, such as public showers, locker rooms, and swimming pools, or by sharing contaminated items like towels, socks, or shoes.
Warm and humid environments: Fungi thrive in warm, moist conditions, which is why athlete’s foot commonly occurs in people who have sweaty feet or who wear tight-fitting, non-breathable shoes.
Symptoms of Athlete’s Foot:
Itching and burning sensation on the affected skin, often between the toes
Redness and inflammation
Peeling, cracking, or flaking skin
Dryness or scaling of the skin
Treatment of Athlete’s Foot:
Antifungal creams and ointments: Over-the-counter topical antifungal medications containing ingredients like clotrimazole, miconazole, terbinafine, or tolnaftate can effectively treat mild athlete foot cases. They are usually applied directly to the affected area for a specified duration as directed on the product label.
Prescription-strength medications: If the infection is severe or doesn’t respond to over-the-counter treatments, a healthcare professional may prescribe more vital antifungal medicines, such as oral or prescription-strength topical creams.
Keeping feet clean and dry: Good foot hygiene is essential in treating and preventing athlete’s foot. Wash your feet daily with soap and water, and dry them thoroughly, especially between the toes.
Use antifungal powders or sprays: Applying antifungal powders or sprays to your feet and inside your shoes can help keep the area dry and inhibit fungal growth.
Avoid tight-fitting shoes and opt for breathable footwear: Wearing open-toed shoes or those made of breathable materials can help reduce moisture and promote airflow, creating an environment less favorable for fungal growth.
Change socks frequently: Opt for moisture-wicking socks and change them at least once a day or more if your feet tend to sweat excessively.
Avoid walking barefoot in public areas: Wear flip-flops or sandals in public showers, locker rooms, and around swimming pools to minimize exposure to fungi.
Treat or discard infected items: Wash or disinfect towels, socks, shoes, and other items that have come into contact with the infection to prevent reinfection.
Seek medical advice: If the infection worsens, spreads, or doesn’t improve with self-care measures, consult a healthcare professional for further evaluation and treatment.
