We are really conscious about taking care of our health. When we realize that any part of our body has a disorder we usually pay a visit to the doctor to fix the problem. Unfortunately, the only area of our bodies which we typically forget to check on for health issues is our feet.

Podiatrists commonly complain that individuals don't take sufficient care of their feet. This is especially true for Athlete’s foot.
Athlete’s foot is a fungal infection that is caused by the feet being encased in footwear and socks the entire day. The darkness and warmth of the covered feet cause the foot being moist. It is this environment that allows the tinea to breed in between the regions of the toes.
Frequently, Athlete’s foot occurs in areas around changing rooms, swimming pools and showers where the atmosphere especially on the ground is warm and moist. Athlete’s foot is a infectious disease. For this reason walking on areas like those mentioned above will leave you at risk from chlamydia.
The method that you can establish when you have Athlete’s foot is from the symptoms which are dry skin, scaling, inflammation, itchiness as well as blisters. Anytime that your feet have blisters you should take care as the blisters might break. Whenever these types of blisters split open small regions of raw skin are exposed. This exposure causes a lot of pain and swelling of the foot area around the Athlete’s foot infection. In case the Athlete’s foot infection develops you might experience a greater degree of burning and itching in those infected regions.
As Athlete’s foot may last for quite a long time it is best to see about obtaining treatment for this problem as soon as you can.
