What is athlete’s foot?
Athlete’s foot, also known as tinea pedis, is a fungal infection that can be easily treated with antifungal creams, powders or sprays. It will typically begin between the toes in the form of an itchy, scaly rash. Athlete’s foot is infectious and is more likely to develop in people with sweaty feet who wear tightly fitted shoes.
How do you prevent athlete’s foot?
Despite the name, anyone can get athlete’s foot - not just athletes. To prevent yourself from getting athlete’s foot, wear protective footwear like shower shoes or flip-flops when walking around a pool, gym, public shower, or locker areas as the fungus which causes athlete’s foot may be on the floor. It’s important to keep your feet dry as the fungus is attracted to damp, warm areas like sweaty shoes - you may wish to alternate shoes each day to give them time to air and dry properly.
