What Is Athletes Foot?
Athlete’s foot is a fungal infection that develops in the moist areas between your toes and sometimes on other parts of your foot. Athlete’s foot usually causes itching, stinging and burning.
Athlete’s foot, also called tinea pedis, is the most common type of fungal infection. It’s closely related to other fungal infections such as ringworm and jock itch. Although contagious, athlete’s foot often can be treated with over-the-counter antifungal medications.
What are the Signs & Symptoms of Athletes Foot?
The signs and symptoms of athlete’s foot can be numerous, although you probably won’t have all of them. They include:
- Itching, stinging and burning between your toes
- Itching, stinging and burning on the soles of your feet
- Itchy blisters
- Cracking and peeling skin, especially between your toes and on the soles of your feet
- Excessive dryness of the skin on the bottoms or sides of the feet
- Toenails that are thick, crumbly, ragged, discolored or pulling away from the nail bed
- Onychomycosis a fungal infection of the nail may develop with or without other signs and symptoms of athlete’s foot.
When to See a Doctor About Athletes Foot
If you have a rash on your foot that doesn’t improve or worsens after you’ve followed home and lifestyle remedies, see your doctor. See your doctor sooner if you notice excessive redness, swelling, drainage or fever, or if you have diabetes and suspect you have athlete’s foot.
