Whilst the weather is cold and damp, we tend to keep our feet covered for longer in an attempt to keep them warm. After working many years as Podiatrist it is normal for me to see a rise in fungal infections, more commonly known as Athlete's Foot or Ring Worm.
The best thing you can do is book an appointment so we can identify the problem and help treat this most common of foot conditions.
Treatments will include:
- Washing socks at a high temperature
- Treating shoes with antifungal treatments
- Treating the skin with the appropriate medication
and one thing we never think to do is... check your partners feet too!
Hope this helps. Look forward to seeing you and your feet soon .
