Fungal infection is very common and includes 4 types – athlete’s foot, jock itch, ringworm and yeast infection. In this post we will talk about feet infection or so called Athlete’s foot infection and how to get rid of it. This fungal infection is also known as tinea pedis and infects our foot. It causes our foot to peel, redness, itching, sometime blisters, burning and sore. This infection is very common and it grows best in a warm, moist environment like on the floors of public showers, locker rooms, socks, swimming pools and shoes. Because it grows in a warm, humid climate, it is very common in the summer. People who use aforementioned things like public showers or public swimming pools are most often to get or occurs fungal infection (Athlete’s foot infection). The foot fungal infection is caused by microscopic fungus which lives on a dead web of the skin layer. This foot fungal infection has four kinds that cause the infection and the most common is Trichophyton rubrum. Other kind of athlete’s foot infection is toe web infection (interdigital) which occurs between the two smallest toes. This kind of infection causes itching, burning and can spread to the sole of the foot. Another kind is moccasin. This kind starts with minor itching, irritation, or scaly skin, and if develops the skin will thicken and crack. This infection can infect entire sole of the foot and if develops, it can take the sides of the foot. And the last kind is called vesicular which starts with sudden outbreak of fluid-filled blisters under the skin. These blisters most often develop on the underside of the foot, but, however, they appear between the toes, on the top of the foot or on the heel. The best way to diagnose the fungal foot infection is to let your doctor scrape the skin and examine the scales under a microscope, because not all itchy or scaly feet can have fungal foot infection.
