Athlete's Foot Treament

Athlete's foot is a term used to describe a form of fungus infection of the feet. The medical term for athlete's foot is tinea pedis. Athlete's foot is a very common skin condition. Many people will develop it at least once in their lives. Athlete's foot occurs mostly among teenage and adult males. Athlete's foot is uncommon in women and children under the age of 12. Athlete's foot should not be ignored--it can be easily treated, but it also can be very resistant to treatment.

Moisture, sweating and lack of proper ventilation of the feet present the perfect setting for the fungus of athlete's foot to grow.
