Athletes foot is a condition on the skin that we treat in the office. It can be as inconspicuous as some peeling skin to a fungal skin problems that can become an infected serious issue.
Some people don't even know they have tinea pedis or athletes foot, they will come in for another problem and we will tell them they have athletes foot. It often looks like dry skin. This type of athletes foot is usually pretty easy to treat with topical over the counter antifungals.
More serious cases of athletes foot may require prescription topical antifungals or in severe cases oral precription medication.
