Athletes Foot Versus Dry Skin from a Georgia Podiatrist

What is Athletes Foot?

Let’s begin with a definition of what Athletes Foot really is. It is derived from a fungus that thrives in dark, moist areas. To avoid this pesky situation, it is important to keep your feet dry at all costs. Traversing through any area that is moist such as a river, a small puddle gets your sock and shoes wet which gives the green light for fungus to take root and spread inside your shoes.

Whenever you have gotten your feet wet for any reason, it is imperative that you thoroughly dry off your feet immediately especially between your toes. If you are one of the unfortunate that constantly have sweaty feet, it is even more important to make sure your feet stay dry as possible by changing into dry socks as much as possible.

The Difference of Athletes Foot and Dry Skin

At this point, let’s take a look at athletes foot vs. dry skin. It is a bit hard that one might realize.  Typically, most view one of the most annoying symptoms of athlete’s feet as being incredibly itch. However, dry feet can reveal the exact situation. Additionally, of the key characteristics seems to be a tendency to burn and tingle but it is not always the case.

In the case of athlete’s foot, the most obvious sign is a moccasin distribution of your dry skin. In other words, you will have a ring of dry skin around your heel and on both sides of your foot and traveling up to your toes. Furthermore, you will notice dry skin in the areas between your toes. In a very mild case, it really will just look like dry skin. The moccasin will not appear until your athlete’s foot has significantly escalated.

Treatment of Athletes Foot

For treatment options, there are some over the counter creams and sprays that usually help. For extreme cases, there are prescription antibiotic cream and an over the counter spray/powder to disinfect your shoes. If all this fails, there are oral antibiotics as well.  Be sure to contact a Georgia Podiatrist to help get proper treatment of athletes foot.
