If you are unsure whether you have athlete’s foot, you are not alone. While many people think they know what athlete’s foot is, they don’t realize that this fungal infection of the feet presents itself in many ways. Even in one person, reoccurring outbreaks can look different from one another, making you wonder, “How can I tell if I have athlete’s foot?”

Most Common Signs and Symptoms of Athlete’s Foot

Symptoms of athlete’s foot are not just limited to itchy feet. The most common signs and symptoms include:

  • Red or peeling skin on the soles of the feet
  • Peeling, itchy dry skin between the toes
  • Blistering on the feet
  • A burning sensation on the feet or toes
  • Areas of thigh, dry, red skin
  • Calluses that are red in color
  • Feet or toes that are very itchy
  • Toenails that are yellow or flaky (fungal infection may affect nails and feet)

While athlete’s foot is not necessarily dangerous, it can present a health risk to people suffering from an immune disorder such as HIV or to patients with diabetes.

When Sharing is not Caring

An advanced case of athlete’s foot has the potential to cause infection and can spread to other areas of the body, such as the hands. Also, if you do not treat athlete’s foot, the fungus can and will spread to other people—such as your gym buddies, friends, and family members. While sharing is nice, nobody wants you to share your athlete’s foot!

This is why our New Berlin podiatrists urge anyone with a suspected case of athlete’s foot to visit one of our four Milwaukee area podiatry offices.

Our expert podiatrists can quickly determine if you have athlete’s foot. If you do, we can help you choose a treatment plan that will get the infection under control as soon as possible. To make an appointment with a New Berlin foot expert with the experience to treat even the most serious cases of athlete’s foot, call the Milwaukee Foot Specialists at 626.649.2628 today.
