Are You Dealing with Red, Itchy Skin on your Feet?

Athlete’s foot is a very common foot problem but one that can be painful and embarrassing to deal with. This common fungal infection can happen to anyone, but you can take some valuable steps and avoid Athlete’s foot this summer.

Dallas and Plano, TX, foot specialists, Drs. Joel Brook and David Northcutt offer some easy tips to help you steer clear of a red, itchy and stinging foot infection:

Keep your feet dry – Athlete’s foot usually starts in the skin between your toes. The fungi that cause the infection thrive in damp, close environments making it very important to keep feet clean and dry. After swimming or bathing, dry your feet well, especially between your toes.

Go natural – Opt for shoes made of natural materials that will draw moisture away from your feet.

Change it up – Alternate your shoes to give them a chance to dry out and change socks every day.

Protect your feet – Athlete’s foot is contagious and can be spread on with contact on contaminated surfaces. Always wear sandals or shower shoes in showers, locker rooms, pool decks and other public areas. Don’t share your shoes with other people and avoid siblings passing down shoes for this reason.

Use a powder – An antifungal powder used daily can help keep an infection from starting.

This type of foot infection could become serious or chronic if left untreated. If you are noticing any red, scaly, itchy or burning skin on your feet or between your toes, contact us today! Make an appointment with Dallas Podiatry Works by calling (972) 566-7474 in Dallas, TX or (972) 943-3323 in Plano, TX.

"I did 3 EPAT treatments and it gave me tremendous relief from my plantar fasciitis. I highly recommend this for anyone who is dealing with PF. Also, the physical therapist Dr. Brook sent me too is fantastic. I am definitely on the mend and so glad I did EPAT."- All H. 5 star
"Dr Northcutt is a fantastic physician. My first surgery with him (although painful), went very well. A couple of issues (with his staff) needed to be corrected, I appreciated his calm and professional demeanor and he corrected those issues promptly. He sets the bar high (the mark of a great physician), and that is the key reason why I'm coming back to him to correct my other foot. I would highly recommend him."- She B. 5 star
"The staff at Dallas Podiatry Works could not have been more courteous, helpful, and professional in doing their job. They made me feel comfortable when I was there, which is certainly appreciated. They answered all the questions that I had and just made each visit the most pleasurable that it could be. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing this type of care."- Joseph B. 5 star
"My experience was a good one from pre-op to post -op. I saw the doctor right before my surgery.He explained the process to me and my husband. The recovery nurse was great. It was neither crowded or chaotic as some day surgery centers. My foot is doing well as I follow instructions. I look forward to my one week progress visit!"- Patricia T.5 star
"I had dealt with a painful foot problem for five months and had seen three different Doctors before seeing an article in D Magazine about Dr. Joel Brook. Dr. Brook took one look at my foot, explained the causes for my pain and set me up on a successful treatment plan. He is very knowledgeable, thorough and exhibits a caring attitude. I highly recommend him."- Ginger W. 5 star
