Athletes Foot

Athlete's Foot is a fungal infection that commonly affects moist areas of skin, such as between toes – but can also occur in dry, flaky areas such as the heel.

If it’s affecting dry areas, ask us for an anti-fungal cream. If it’s in moist areas,ask us for a spray. 

 wash your feet in cold water then dry them thoroughly – dab, don’t rub. Avoid using moisturiser/powder between the toes.

Applying surgical spirit can help reduce moisture, but only use on unbroken skin.  At home get your feet out and let the air get to your toes as much as possible.

Your Podiatrist at the North East foot Centre will be happy to help diagnose this condition, advise on the best treatment and how to prevent it in the future.
