Tinea Pedis


Tinea pedis, also referred to as Athlete’s foot, is fungal infection of the feet that may last for either short or long term, and may even erupt again post treatment at a later stage. It generally occurs in the event that some fungus develops on your feet. Besides the toes, tinea pedis may also erupt on the palms, heels and between fingers. You may develop more chances of getting tinea pedis, if you often wear closed shoes (plastic-lined ones, particularly), keep your feet wet for longer duration, get frequent sweats, or develop a minor injury on your skin or nail. A contagious disease that it is known, the key symptoms include red, itchy skin, burning pain, and blisters that get crusty. Tinea pedis is examined through tests like skin culture, skin lesion biopsy and skin lesion KOH exam.
