Treatments for Athlete’s Foot
Seek Help From Our Coconut Creek Podiatrist
The condition known as athlete’s foot is a chronic infection caused by fungus. The ailment is commonly spread in places such as public showers and swimming pools, where it is common to go barefoot. Symptoms can include mild scaling and itching. The condition can lead to severe inflammation and painful blisters if left untreated. Athlete’s foot starts between the toes and spreads to the bottom or sides of your feet. Our Coconut Creek podiatrist, Eric J. Lullove, DPM, can provide personalized treatment to alleviate any discomfort.
Depending on the type of infection you have, we may recommend the following treatments:
- Foot soaks
Successful treatment usually involves a combination of medication and self-care. Each plan of treatment is meant to reduce any itching, scaling, or inflammation and prevent reinfection as well. If your condition does not improve, our trained and experienced podiatrist will re-examine you to prescribe stronger medication. Contact us today at (561) 989-9780 to schedule an appointment!
