Athlete's Foot is a common fungal infection associated with sweaty, hot feet confined in frequently-used training shoes. It’s characterised by white patches and cracked skin between toes, as well as red flaky patches. While not considered a serious condition, its appearance can be distressing, and if not sufficiently handled can lead to a fungal nail infection. Many people address athlete’s foot with a spray, sometimes dealing with similar symptoms on hands. A selection of creams, soaps and other topical applications are available.
