Do I have athletes foot?

What is Athlete’s foot?

It’s a fungal skin infection most commonly presenting between the toes but it can affect the whole foot. It’s itchy, red and sore.

What can I do about it?

That’s where we come in! Fungal infections are notoriously hard to treat. There are many over the counter products available and it is very dependent on the severity of the infection to whether they will work or not.

The key ingredient when treating fungal infections is called terbinafine. This can come in the form of oral tablets, creams, powders, sprays and ointments. When we treat fungal skin infections, we take into consideration the area of the foot that is affected and your lifestyle. We will then supply you with the correct product which will generally take around 2-3 weeks to have an impact.
