Athlete’s Foot or Tinea Pedis

This refers to a fungal infection of the skin of the foot, and is very common, more so in adults that children. It is seen as maceration, bleeding, blistering, in the most severe cases. In milder cases itchiness, dryness and flakiness is seen. The skin appears to be mildly white and discoloured. It can occur on the soles and between the toes as well.

Consult a podiatrist at South Lake Podiatry to confirm a fungal infection and discuss your options for treatment. Sometimes, persistent and recurrent infection may be an indicator of decreased function of your immune system and should be evaluated.
