How To Stop Athletes Foot In Its Tracks

Yes, you can stop athlete's foot. Athlete’s foot is also called as Tinea pedis . It is the infection of the toe webs and soles of the feet. It commonly affects pre-adolescents, adolescents and adults. Usually the webs between the third to the fourth toe and the fourth to fifth are affected. It can spread to the toe nails, sole and the sides of the feet.

This fungal infection affects the epidermis , or the uppermost layer of the skin. It affects more males than females. Athletes foot is the second most common skin problem in the United States, the first being acne. Athlete’s foot is a fungal infection.

The causative organisms include the following fungi: Tinea rubrum Tinea mentagrophytes Epidermophyton flocossum Like any other fungus, the fungi causing athlete’s foot also thrive on a damp, closed environment . People with damp socks and shoes are predisposed to this skin problem. In summer and during humid climates, these infections are common as the excess sweating during that period promotes the growth of these fungi.

Person-to-person transmission and transmission from pets can occur. Patients with a depressed immune system as in diabetes and HIV infection are more prone to athlete’s foot. Sometimes bacteria may overgrow these fungal infections. In infected patients proteins may enter the blood stream and incite an allergic reaction by forming blisters in the toes and fingers. This is called a dermatophytid reaction.


Signs and symptoms Not all patients with this infection develop the signs and symptoms. The signs and symptoms of athlete’s foot or tinea pedis include the following:

  • Involvement of the web spaces, sides and the soles of the feet
  • Fissuring, maceration and peeling of the skin
  • Itching, stinging and burning sensation
  • Persistent foul odor
  • Thick discolored nails

Diagnosis of athlete’s foot involves demonstrating the fungi in the skin lesions. This is done by your podiatrist. The scrapings from the skin lesion are examined under microscope and also are cultured. The scraping is usually treated with potassium hydroxide to remove the skin debris. The fourth toe web provides a high yield of infected scales.

Treatment involves:

    • Avoiding occlusive footwear; wear shoes with 'breathable' fabric
    • Anti-fungal soap
    • Careful drying between the toes after bathing
    • Changing socks and stockings regularly
    • Absorbent antifungal agent like zinc undecylenate
    • Application of an antifungal agent
    • Tineacide anti-fungal cream
