Athlete’s Foot

Athlete’s foot is the most common term to describe a fungus condition involving the skin of the feet and toes. Another term is Tinea Pedis. However, that means a ringworm type infection and the term is misleading, since the organisms that cause it are not worms, but are fungus spores technically known as dermatophytes. A more appropriate name is Dermatophytosis. The three names above really mean the same thing. — The patient first notices an itching sensation, usually between the toes. The skin in that area may have small blisters and be peeling. A less itchy form of Athlete’s Foot can appear as a dry, red peeling condition on the bottom of the foot.4 Contact Us today for more information about athlete’s foot treatment in Beverly Hills
