Athlete's Foot

This problem is the result of very common fungal infections that can be seen in any person.

Most of the time it occurs if a person often walks barefoot on a wet surface. It causes such symptoms as cracks, skin peeling, and itching on the soles and between the toes.

Dermatologists recommend that you follow these guidelines to avoid an Athlete’s feet.

  • Do not walk barefoot in pools, gyms, showers, changing rooms, and hotel rooms. Wear slippers or shoes and avoid contact with the floor.
  • In public places, it is better to keep your feet dry. Toe fungus develops easily in hot, humid places. That is why shoes made from non-natural materials do not allow foot ventilation, cause excessive sweating and create the risk of fungus.
  • Feet should be washed with soap every day and dried thoroughly.
  • Wear socks made of natural and fast-drying materials. Socks should be changed every day or even several times during the day.
  • Do not wear the same pair of shoes two days in a row. Let it dry as often as possible.
  • If there is someone with an Athlete’s foot in your environment don't share towels, sheets, socks, shoes or slippers with them.
