<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Look for the following signs if you believe you have Athlete’s Foot Blisters and/or cracked skin.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Blisters break, exposing tissue which becomes very painful and swollen.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>It’s important to keep your eye on the condition of your feet and pay close attention to cleanliness. Should the condition not respond to treatment, check with your doctor.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>The podiatrist will perform an exam and check with you about your symptoms and your history. It’s likely that the doctor will remove a small portion of the affected area and examine it to see if it’s bacterial infection or fungus.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>Proper treatment relies on correct diagnosis. Proper cleaning of the infected foot is of paramount importance. There are many non prescription medications readily available. Make certain to see your doctor if the infection persists for 14 days or longer.</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Keep your feet clean. Make certain that your feet are washed with soap and warm water at least once per day and then, thoroughly dried, paying special attention to the area between your toes.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Use a liberal amount of anti-fungal powder to keep your feet dry – especially inside your shoes. Make certain to wear fresh socks and different shoes on a regular basis.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>In order to stop the possibility of spreading this fungus to others, do not go barefoot in public areas such as locker rooms or swimming pools.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>If the fungal infection is not severe, non prescription medications may provide the necessary treatment. If you have any medical issues such as liver or kidney disease or diabetes, make certain your doctor is aware before you take any prescribed medications for fungal infections.</strong></em></p>

The fungus most often attacks the feet because shoes create a warm, dark, and humid environment that encourages fungus growth.</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>The signs of athlete’s foot can include the following:</p>

<ul style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>
<li>Dry skin</li>
<li>Itching and burning, which may increase as the infection spreads</li>
<li>Scaling</li>
<li>Inflammation</li>
<li>Blisters, which often lead to cracking of the skin.</li>
</ul>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>When blisters break, small raw areas of tissue are exposed, causing pain and swelling. If an apparent fungus condition does not respond to proper foot hygiene, and there is no improvement within two weeks, consult a podiatrist.</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>The podiatrist will perform an exam and ask about your symptoms and medical history. The doctor may scrape a small skin sample from the affected area and look at it under the microscope to see if it’s a bacterial infection or a fungal infection. Other conditions may also look like athlete’s foot. A definitive diagnosis is important to ensure a successful treatment.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Treatment aims to rid the body of the infection. Therapy will include good foot hygiene and proper medication. Many over-the-counter antifungal medications are available. Get medical care if the infection lasts for two weeks or more.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><strong>Maintain foot hygiene – keep your feet clean and dry</strong></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Gently wash your feet with soap and water at least once per day, and thoroughly dry them, especially the area between your toes.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Put a dusting of antifungal foot powder on your feet and in your shoes to absorb moisture.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Change your shoes and socks frequently.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Do not swim or go barefoot in public locker rooms when you have an infection. This will help prevent you from spreading the infection to other people.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><strong>Medications</strong></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Over-the-counter topical antifungal powders or creams may be helpful if the fungal infection is not severe. Prescription topical or oral medications may be more effective.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>The doctor may prescribe an antifungal medication to be taken by mouth or applied to the feet. Be sure to make your doctor aware of any other medical problems you may have had, such as liver or kidney disease, or diabetes.</p>
