Of all the fungal infections, athletes foot is the most annoying of all, especially if you are a player who has to keep his/her feet tucked in shoes all day long. The signs that indicate its entry into your skin are redness, itching, dryness, sore feet and small blisters. An infection that usually starts in between the toes can make the skin turn white. The treatment recommended by medical practitioners in this case are clotrimazole, econazole and miconazole lotion. Prevent it with some regular hygiene practices like keeping skin dry, especially between the toes, sprinkling antifungal powder and wearing breathable socks.
