Athlete’s foot is a fungal infection of the skin that can cause dry, scaly skin and red, itching skin. In some cases small blisters may form on the skin and this then leads to spreading of the infection. The infection can cause problems between the toe and on the bottoms of the feet. In some cases over-the-counter remedies may not work and you need to see a podiatrist for treatment. Secondary bacterial infections can result if athlete’s foot is not treated early. The infection may also spread to the toenails and this can become much more resistant to treatment. Make sure to keep your feet dry especially between the toes.
