Athletes Foot

The term athlete’s foot is a highly misleading word, as this condition does not only occur in athletes. Athlete’s foot is a common name given to a fungus infection of the skin that occurs in between toes.This condition can cause a great deal of discomfort and can affect an individual’s quality of life.


  • The skin involved may be red, swollen and may contain sticky fluid.
  • The skin may also appear macerated (soggy).

The above photographs show the effects of an athletes foot condition in between toes and on the bottom surface of the foot.


  • The affected area may be peeling and have small blisters.
  • It may also appear red, dry and itchy.
  • If left untreated, there may be deep cracks in the skin which can lead to a secondary bacterial infection.
  • It may contain sticky clear fluid.
  • The patient may experience severe pain from the condition. Patients often report a burning or stinging sensation and find the lesion very itchy.


  • Many people have the fungus present on their skin but are unaffected by the microscopic organism. Conditions such as bruising or cracks in the skin allow entry for the fungus.
  • Fungi thrive on moist, warm environments this is why the condition usually occurs in between toes due to an accumulation of moisture.
  • It may also spread between individuals. A common port of entry is found within bathrooms, showers, swimming pools and changing rooms.
  • Not changing your socks on a regular basis can also encourage the build up of fungi in between the toes.
  • People with excessively sweaty feet are more prone to this condition.
