Athletes footsAnother infection caused by fungi is Athlete's foot. Athlete's foot is caused by fungi that grow in or on the top layer of the skin. As fungi grow best in warm, moist places, areas such as between the toes are most likely to be affected. The symptoms of athlete's foot can include cracked, swollen, blistered skin or an itchy, scaly, flaky, dry and red rash between the toes. Treatments available for athlete’s foot are antifungal creams, powders and fast drying sprays. Speak to your pharmacist or healthcare advisor to help you choose the most suitable treatment for you.
VerrucasThere are several different types of warts which can vary in size and shape. Common warts are firm and raised, with a rough surface that can look a bit like a cauliflower. They can occur anywhere, but are most common on the hands, elbows and knees. Verrucas are warts that occur on the soles of your feet. They can also occur on the heels and toes. Treatment options for warts and verrucas are acid gels to burn them away or freezing products that kill the Verruca. Over the counter treatment can only be used on hands and feet.
