Athlete’s foot also known as Tinea Pedis is a fungal infection that can occur in the foot. Athlete’s foot is very common in between the toes and along the arches. Children are exposed to this infection in places such as public pools and barefoot activities such as Taekwondo. Athlete’s foot can present itself as an area of red, itchy and peeling skin. Often it is misdiagnosed as dry skin. It is best not to delay treatment as Athlete’s foot infection can spread into the toenails causing a Fungal toenail infection. Our Podiatrists are experienced in diagnosing the problem correctly and may recommend some anti-fungal medication and provide you with advice on how to manage the condition.
