Athlete's Foot

Athlete' s Foot is a common infection of the foot. It causes red, cracked skin and water filled blisters on the soles of the feet or between the toes that may itch or burn. It can infect the toenails (fungus toenails), causing them to become discolored and thickened.

Athlete' s Foot is contagious and left untreated it can lead to secondary bacterial infection, especially in diabetics and patients with circulatory problems. Therefore, prompt treatment is recommended to cure this disease and prevent re-infection of the patient or family members. Treatment consists of identifying and removing the offending material and medicating the skin and toenails to alleviate the inflammation, reduce the rash, blisters and affected toenails.

Lifestyle Podiatry is a podiatry practice tailored to the needs, coverage & pocketbook of every foot. All our doctors accept many different kinds of medical insurance. If one does not, we will accommodate you by allowing another doctor to treat you. Please call us if you have any questions about a particular insurance, as we most likely accept it.
