Athlete’s foot is an infection of the skin, hair and nails caused by dermatophytes. Dermatophytes are aerobic fungi capable of degrading and assimilating hornworm and parasitising human hair and nails. The disease is very common, with around 70% of people contracting it at some point in their lives.
Infection requires exposure to a sufficient amount of infectious material on the skin (e.g. when wearing unauthorised footwear, being barefoot in a public sauna or shower room) and a suitable environment for the fungus to grow. Risk factors include micro-trauma, excessive sweating of the feet, skin maceration, closed shoes, warm and humid climates, circulatory disorders of the feet, diabetes, immunosuppression.
Symptoms of fungal infections include scaling, scaling, unpleasant smell, profuse sweating of the feet, and stinging and pain if there are sores. Fungal athlete’s foot is divided into 3 forms:
When the nail becomes diseased, the nail plate changes colour, becomes mottled and irregular, the nail becomes deformed and begins to crumble.
Diagnosis of the fungal disease is by microscopic and culture examination, which involves collecting material from skin discs, villi, nails, etc., from which the causative agent can be identified.
Treatment for fungal disease is either local or systemic. Topical treatment (gel, ointment, cream) can be used to treat mild to moderate infection. Systemic treatment (tablets, capsules) is necessary for extensive or severe disease. Patients with diabetes, circulatory disorders of the extremities or immune suppression (due to drugs or disease) may also need systemic treatment.
