Hi lybrate-user first of all athletes foot is a condition if left untreated can cause fissures and is also a condition which can spread very easily. If possible I would like to see a picture of the same. Mean while avoid scratching over those area. Avoid sharing towels. Keep that area neat. Need to take medicines inside tooo. But to prevent too much difficulties you can use triphala kshalanam but triphala kashayam is to be prepared in luke warm water and used only after filtering using a filter. Then with a clean towel wipe slowly without rubbing too hard.

Athlete's foot is a fungal skin infection spread through contact with an infected person, walking barefoot on contaminated surfaces, such as locker rooms, pools, and sharing mats, bed linens, or shoes. Damp socks, shoes, warm climate, wearing tight shoes for long hours aggravate the complaints. The symptoms includes - itching - more after you remove the shoes & socks, scaly rash, redness of skin, burning. The infection can easily spread to groins, other areas of body through own hands after itching. For prevention try wearing sandals as much as you can; if you want to wear shoes have two pairs so that you can change them alternately; change your socks daily; wash your feet twice a day and wipe it dry; use warm soapy water to wash your feet; avoid walking barefoot in public places. You can try antifungal creams from over the counter at pharmacy. If within two weeks the symptoms don't subside please visit a doctor.

Athlete's foot (tinea pedis) is a fungal infection that usually begins between the toes. It commonly occurs in people whose feet have become very sweaty while confined within tightfitting shoes. Signs and symptoms of athlete's foot include a scaly rash that usually causes itching, stinging and burning. Athlete's foot is contagious and can be spread via contaminated floors, towels or clothing. Athlete's foot is closely related to other fungal infections such as ringworm and jock itch. It can be treated with over-the-counter antifungal medications, but the infection often recurs. Prescription medications also are available. Symptoms athlete's foot usually causes a scaly red rash. The rash typically begins in between the toes. Itching is often the worst right after you take off your shoes and socks. Some types of athlete's foot feature blisters or ulcers. The moccasin variety of athlete's foot causes chronic dryness and scaling on the soles that extends up the side of the foot. It can be mistaken for eczema or even as dry skin. The infection can affect one or both feet and can spread to your hand — especially if you scratch or pick at the infected parts of your feet. When to see a doctorif you have a rash on your foot that doesn't improve after self-treatment, see your doctor. If you have diabetes, see your doctor if you suspect you have athlete's foot, especially if you notice any signs of a possible secondary bacterial infection such as excessive redness, swelling, drainage or fever. Causes athlete's foot is caused by the same type of fungus that causes ringworm and jock itch. Damp socks and shoes and warm, humid conditions favor the organisms' growth. Athlete's foot is contagious and can be spread by contact with an infected person or from contact with contaminated surfaces, such as towels, floors and shoes. Risk factors you are at higher risk of athlete's foot if you: •are a man •frequently wear damp socks or tightfitting shoes •share mats, rugs, bed linens, clothes or shoes with someone who has a fungal infection •walk barefoot in public areas where the infection can spread, such as locker rooms, saunas, swimming pools, communal baths and showers complications your athlete's foot infection can spread to other parts of your body, including: •your hand. People who scratch or pick at the infected parts of their feet may develop a similar infection in one of their hands. •your nails. The fungi associated with athlete's foot can also infect your toenails, a location that tends to be more resistant to treatment. •your groin. Jock itch is often caused by the same fungus that results in athlete's foot. It's common for the infection to spread from the feet to the groin as the fungus can travel on your hands or on a towel. Prevention these tips can help you avoid athlete's foot or ease the symptoms if infection occurs: •keep your feet dry, especially between your toes. Go barefoot to let your feet air out as much as possible when you're home. Dry between your toes after a bath or shower. •change socks regularly. If your feet get very sweaty, change your socks twice a day. •wear light, well-ventilated shoes. Avoid shoes made of synthetic material, such as vinyl or rubber. •alternate pairs of shoes. Don't wear the same pair every day so that you give your shoes time to dry after each use. •protect your feet in public places. Wear waterproof sandals or shoes around public pools, showers and lockers rooms. •treat your feet. Use powder, preferably antifungal, on your feet daily. •don't share shoes. Sharing risks spreading a fungal infection.

These medicines only suppress the condition and not give any permanent cure. You have to keep on taking the medicines but as soon as you quit the problem intensify again. In order to get rid of this trouble you should start with homoeopathic medicines and get a permanent solution. Regards

I am suffering from ringworm from last one year. I switched to homoeopathic in between but didn't see any change, so I switched back to allopathy and I take terbinafine and itraconazole tablets daily. The itching is in control but when I stop eating those tablets, it again starts. 1. Is there any permanent way to cure this disease? 2. I have really big patches of ringworm on my inner thighs and ass, I can not go to swimming as they are clearly visible, how can cure those patches (although no itching sensation)? 3. Can I apply soap on the infected region while I take bath? 4. I have heard that by doing gym, these patches will disappear, is it true? 5. Is my age right for joining gym as I have huge belly fats? 6. Does my underwear style (jockey fp02 brief) is the reason for this ringworm?

Ringworm or Tinea infections, are a fungal skin disease. A family of fungi called dermatophytes causes these infections which might occur anywhere on the body, typically the arms, legs, neck, groin, scalp, hair, nails or beard. The fungi survive on the dead skin cells or keratin and rarely invade the deeper membranes and tissues. However, many ringworm (or Tinea) infections often recur and the usual medicines simply do not help the patient. Homoeopathic constitutional treatment will give you a permanent cure You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effect Medicines will reach you via courier services
