Athletes Foot

INTRODUCTION TO ATHLETES FOOT

The term athlete's foot is a highly misleading word, as this condition does not only occur in athletes. Athlete's foot is a common name given to a fungus infection of the skin that occurs in between toes.This condition can cause a great deal of discomfort and can affect an individual's quality of life.

APPEARANCE OF ATHLETES FOOT

  • The skin involved may be red, swollen and may contain sticky fluid.
  • The skin may also appear macerated (soggy).

SYMPTOMS OF ATHLETES FOOT

  • The affected area may be peeling and have small blisters.
  • It may also appear red, dry and itchy.
  • If left untreated, there may be deep cracks in the skin which can lead to a secondary bacterial infection.
  • It may contain sticky clear fluid.
  • The patient may experience severe pain from the condition. Patients often report a burning or stinging sensation and find the lesion very itchy.

CAUSES OF ATHLETES FOOT

  • Many people have the fungus present on their skin but are unaffected by the microscopic organism. Conditions such as bruising or cracks in the skin allow entry for the fungus.
  • Fungi thrive on moist, warm environments this is why the condition usually occurs in between toes due to an accumulation of moisture.
  • It may also spread between individuals. A common port of entry is found within bathrooms, showers, swimming pools and changing rooms.
  • Not changing your socks on a regular basis can also encourage the build up of fungi in between the toes.
  • People with excessively sweaty feet are more prone to this condition.

Testimonial

"My name is George, I had lots of itching, burning and skin cracking between my toes. I heard about Imperial Fungus solution and used a little dab between each toe twice a week. The itchy-burnt feeling went away and my skin stopped cracking and healed up nicely. I have been using it once a week ever since and have not had any sign of athlete's foot since".

Testimonial

"I've never used this type of product until recently, when I came down with athlete's foot. I used Imperial Foot Solution for about a week and the fungus gradually cleared up. I no longer experience the itching, burning sensation I once did. I would definitely recommend this product."

Testimonial

"I had a really severe case of athlete's foot for several years. I used to get itchy burning feet and small blisters appearing all over my feet that used to ooze. I tried everything I could find and nothing would work. After using the Imperial Feet Athlete Foot Solution and Anti- Fungal Spray for 3 days I noticed a considerable difference. Within 5 to 7 days it was gone! Thank you very much!"
