If you suspect you have Athlete's foot, try an over the counter anti-fungal medication (powder, lotion, cream, or spray). In addition, follow advice in the prevention category. If condition does not respond, prescription medication may be required, either topical or oral. In addition, some bacterial infections or skin disorders may mimic the appearance of Athlete's foot. These conditions will require alternative therapy, as they will not respond to anti-fungal medication. If condition worsens or you are concerned and do not want to attempt treatment yourself, call and make an appointment.
