Athlete’s foot infection is a common, contagious skin disease that often causes itching. It can cause flaking, peeling, blistering and sores.
Who gets the athlete's foot?
Foot fungus is a common condition. It is more common in people whose feet sweat a lot, who wear tight, closed, airtight shoes, and in situations where there is a lot of contact with water, or in people who do such professions and people with triggering factors such as diabetes patients. This condition, which is most common in young adult men, can also be seen in women and individuals under 12 years of age.
When can the athlete’s foot be treated?
Since the athlete’s foot is contagious, it must be treated as soon as it is detected considering the health of the patient and the people around them.
