FOOT SKIN FINGER FUNGUS

FOOT SKIN FINGER FUNGUS OVERVIEW

When fungus grows on the feet, it is called athlete’s foot (or tinea pedis). It got this name because it affects people whose feet tend to be damp and sweaty, which is often the case with athletes. But anyone can get this infection.

Athlete’s foot is a type of fungal skin infection. Fungi (the plural of fungus) are microscopic plant-like organisms that thrive in damp, warm environments. They’re usually not dangerous, but sometimes can cause disease. When they infect the skin, they cause mild but annoying rashes. Fungal skin infections are also known as tinea infections.

FOOT SKIN FINGER FUNGUS SYMPTOMS

There are many possible symptoms of athlete’s foot, which include:

  • Itching, stinging, and burning between your toes or on soles of your feet
  • Blisters on your feet that itch
  • Cracking and peeling skin on your feet, most commonly between your toes and on your soles
  • Dry skin on your soles or sides of your feet
  • Raw skin on your feet
  • Discolored, thick, and crumbly toenails
  • Toenails that pull away from the nail bed

FOOT SKIN FINGER FUNGUS COMPLICATIONS

Athlete’s foot can lead to complications in some cases. Mild complications include an allergic reaction to the fungus, which can lead to blistering on the feet or hands. It’s also possible for the fungal infection to return after treatment.

There can be more severe complications if a secondary bacterial infection develops. In this case, your foot might be swollen, painful, and hot. Pus, drainage, and fever are additional signs of a bacterial infection.

It’s also possible for the bacterial infection to spread to the lymph system. A skin infection could lead to infections of your lymphatic system or lymph nodes.
