Common Foot Problems

Fungal Skin and Nail Infections

If you are experiencing itching, scaling or redness on your feet or in between your toes, you could have the fungal skin infection known as Tinea or Athletes Foot.

Athletes foot is caused by a fungus which usually lurks in moist environments such as public swimming pools, change rooms and showers.

The same fungus can also affect your nails (a condition called onychomycosis). This can cause your nail to become discoloured, brittle and crumbly.

Although self limiting, fungal nail and skin infections can be an embarrassing condition to develop. If you think you have a fungal nail or skin infection book an appointment with Stephanie today to discuss your treatment options.
