Effective Relief from Athlete's Foot at Central Florida Foot & Ankle Institute

Athlete's foot, a common fungal infection, can be more than just an annoyance — it can cause discomfort and impact your daily life. At Central Florida Foot & Ankle Institute, we offer effective treatment options to eradicate the infection and provide relief from its symptoms.

Understanding Athlete's Foot

Athlete's foot, medically known as tinea pedis, is caused by a fungus that thrives in warm, moist environments. It typically affects the skin between the toes, but can spread to other parts of the foot. Common in athletes, this condition is highly contagious and can be contracted in communal areas, like locker rooms and pools.

Symptoms of Athlete's Foot

  • Itching, burning sensation between the toes
  • Cracked, flaky, or peeling skin on the feet
  • Redness or blisters
  • Dry skin on the soles or sides of the feet

Our Approach to Treatment

We focus on both eradicating the infection and preventing recurrence:

  • Topical Antifungal Medications: These are applied directly to the skin and are the first line of treatment.
  • Oral Antifungal Medications: For more severe or persistent cases, oral medications may be prescribed.
  • Foot Hygiene Education: Teaching proper foot care to prevent reinfection.
  • Recommendations for Footwear: Advice on breathable, moisture-wicking shoes and socks.

Advanced Treatment Options

For persistent or recurrent cases, we may consider:

  • Prescription-Strength Topical Treatments: Stronger antifungal creams or ointments.
  • Laser Therapy: An advanced option for treating chronic athlete's foot.
