Athlete’s foot is caused by a fungal infection.
Normally itchiness and this can be anywhere on the foot. The skin may also crack and flake off.
Funguses thrive in a warm, dark and moist environment. This is very similar to the environment the foot is exposed to in the shoe. If you spend lots of time in waterproof boots or doing sport you may be more likely to be predisposed to this condition.
Good foot health is key:
If you see no improvements or see any signs of infection make an appointment with the appropriate medical practitioner in your area.
It is important to have it checked to make sure it is athlete’s foot. The podiatrist will treat it similarly but will adapt a treatment plan based on your lifestyle.
