Athlete's Feet (tinea pedis)

So let's get started with the foot condition I see the most and the one which is the most mistreated,  Athlete's feet.  BTW you do not have to be an athlete to have this condition, it is highly communicable and can be picked up in shower stalls, bathroom floors, gyms, yoga mats etc... Athlete's feet is a fungus under the skin  that likes dark, moist, warm environments like the areas between the toes or on the bottoms of the feet.  Athlete’s foot can inflame the skin and cause a white, scaly rash with a red base. The athlete’s foot fungus also can causes itching, burning, peeling, and sometimes a slight odour; the infection can also migrate to other body parts, so avoid touching it with your hands. Most people will see the skin on their feet peel and look dry. Their first reaction is to moisturize the feet, but this will only feed the  fungus under the skin and make it worse especially if the wrong product is used.  You can avoid athlete's foot by keeping your feet and toes clean and dry and by changing your shoes and socks regularly.  I like to recommend doing an apple cider vinegar soak ( 1 cup of apple cider vinegar to 1 cup water) once or twice a week.  Fungus does not like the acidic environment and I also encourage my patients to use Gehwol's Green cream.  It contains the active substance complex Deozinc, it is rapidly absorbed, sweating is normalized and feet become fresh and ordourless, smooth and silky.
