What is Athlete’s Foot and how is it treated?

What is Athlete’s Foot?

Athlete’s foot, also known as tinea pedis (or you may have heard people describe it as foot fungus, foot fungal infection or itching between toes) is a fungal skin infection of the feet that typically starts between the toes. It is believed that 70% of the population is infected by Athlete’s foot at some stage of their life (i), so if you suffer with athlete’s foot, there is no reason to feel you are the only one!

Symptoms of athlete’s foot?

You might ask, how do I know if I have athlete’s foot? The symptoms can vary from person to person. You may only have some of these or all of them, it really depends on the individual and how developed the condition is. The symptoms include:

  • Itching of the feet
  • Itching between the toes
  • Dry, scaly skin
  • Rash on the feet
  • Painful, burning sensation of the feet
  • It may cause ulcers and blisters of the feet
  • Bad foot odour

Who is at risk of getting Athlete’s Foot?

Anyone is at risk of developing athlete’s foot at any stage of their lives, but it is more common in people between the ages of 31 and 60 (ii) but also those who have higher levels of trauma to the feet, sweating, wear occlusive footwear or expose their feet in communal areas (iii). It was found that 31% of marathon runners in a survey had clinically identified tinea pedis / athlete's foot (iv). 

A study found that swimming pool employees are 15 times more likely to have athlete’s foot (v). So, anyone who exposes their feet in any communal area, run a higher risk of getting the condition.
