Do you suffer from Athletes Foot?
Athlete’s foot is a condition which affects the feet, causing the skin to be flaky and sometimes itchy. It’s caused by a fungal infection and is found most frequently in people who use communal bathrooms, such as sportspeople and those of us who visit the gym. It’s exacerbated by warm, damp environments, which is exactly what your trainers are like after you exercise!
Treat your Athletes foot properly
While the severity of athlete’s foot will vary from person to person and will rarely be severe enough to pose a serious problem, it’s also notoriously difficult to treat. Many over-the-counter athletes foot preparations are simply not strong enough to treat the condition, causing it to lie dormant for a while and then come back with a vengeance.
Most commonly the symptoms first appear between the toes, including a scaly rash which is often itchy. If left untreated, this rash will eventually spread to the other areas of the feet and become increasingly more red and sore.
Athletes Foot is a condition caused by multiple species of fungi. These organisms favour warm, moist conditions, most notably between the toes. The condition is normally acquired when an individual comes into contact with another person infected, or from a surface where the fungi can thrive, for example swimming pool or gym locker rooms.
Examples of treatment include:
Antifungal ointment, cream, powder, or spray
Antifungal pills, which need to be prescribed if the condition is more persistent or severe
Our highly experienced staff will offer their advice on aftercare. It is most important to limit bare foot exposure in locker rooms or swimming changing rooms, maintain good foot hygiene e.g. changing socks regularly, and wearing well-ventilated shoes.
