ATHLETE’S FOOT

 Do you have red, itching burning feet? Is the skin on your feet or between your toes red and flaky? This can be caused by a variety of problems, such as eczema, dermatitis or psoriasis. But by far the most common problem is an infection known as tinea pedis, or athlete's foot.

 This is a fungal infection often picked up in locker rooms and showers.  The name came from a firm trying to sell anti-fungal creams.  Previously, they were called “policeman’s foot” but it seems people like to think of themselves more as athletes than policemen.  The fungus causes redness, cracking, itching and sometimes blisters between the toes.  Drying feet thoroughly, wearing thongs in the shower room, and applying cornstarch regularly can prevent the fungus from spreading. Type your paragraph here.
