You don’t have to be an athlete to get Athlete’s Foot! This fungal infection on the feet is usually seen between the toes but may also spread to the sides of the foot. Common symptoms include itching or burning sensations. The fungus that causes this condition thrives in wet and damp conditions and spreads easily. It can spread by not wearing shoes at public pools and locker rooms, but can be prevented by simple precautions like keeping feet and shoes clean and dry; wearing sandals or flip-flops at pools, and public showers.
**Be sure to make an appointment if you are diabetic and notice symptoms of excessive swelling, redness, or fever
