What is Athlete’s Foot. Athlete’s Foot is a common fungal infection. It can make the skin between your toes flaky and itchy. The fungus that causes athlete’s foot is a spore that can survive for up to 2 years. The fungus thrives in conditions that are moist, warm and dark. Therefore shoes and footwear are the ideal environment for reproducing the bacteria.
Causes of Athlete’s Foot. There are several dermatophytes that can cause Athlete’s Foot. The most common is trichophyton rubrum. These live on human skin and may be present without you being aware of it. However, under certain conditions the fungi are able to multiply and cause infection, in warm enclosed environments e.g. between the toes.
Athlete’s Foot is contagious and can be spread through direct contact, through a cut or abrasion of the foot or indirectly through footwear, towels, the floor etc.
Treatment of Athlete’s Foot. Go to your pharmacist who can recommend a suitable treatment or alternatively see your doctor.
