Roselle Fungal Foot Infections

When you think about dry, itching skin, it may initially sound like a common problem that can be easily treated by using lotions and other moisturizers. But chronic itching and discomfort can often be the sign of a fungal infection of the skin. Fungal infections can easily spread to other parts of the body and become problematic. One of the more common skin fungal infections is athlete’s foot, and our podiatrist in Roselle, Dr. Philip L. Forni, can help diagnose and treat athlete’s foot before it becomes any more of an issue. A quick visit to AFP Podiatry can help you identify and treat this condition quickly and painlessly.

This foot condition is caused by a fungus that is typically found between the toes. Skin fungus tends to grow in this area due to the warm, dark, humid environment that is created when wearing socks and shoes. It is often associated with athletes, hence the name athlete’s foot, because of the amount of physical activity that they take part in. While an increased amount of sweat can increase your chances of developing this type of fungus, it can still occur even if you don’t. It is important to pay attention to small signs and symptoms as they can help you know if you have any medical concerns. If you have any of the symptoms associated with athlete’s foot for more than a day or two, then you should make sure to schedule an appointment with our podiatrist in Roselle. If you experience any dry skin, scaling of the skin, persistent itching, inflammation or blisters, then make sure to schedule an appointment with us here at AFP Podiatry. If athlete’s foot is left untreated, the infection can spread to other parts of the foot including the sole, the toenails, and it can even travel to other parts of the body as well.

What may seem like a little concern, like foot itching, can easily escalate if not properly identified and diagnosed. Athlete’s foot is easily treatable and our podiatrist in Roselle can provide you with the treatment option that best suits you and your skin type.
