Athlete’s Foot Treatment

If untreated, skin blisters and cracks caused by Athlete’s Foot can cause serious bacterial infections. The treatment of Athlete’s Foot depends on the type and extent of the fungal infection, so it is important to consult our practice before choosing a therapy.

Athlete’s Foot can usually be treated with anti-fungal creams. Re-infection is common, so it is important to continue the therapy as prescribed, even if the fungus appears to have gone away. Lasting cases of Athlete’s Foot may require foot soaks before applying anti-fungal creams. Severe infections that appear suddenly (acute) usually respond well to treatment. Toenail infections that develop with Athlete’s Foot tend to be more difficult to cure than fungal skin infections.
