The health of our feet is something we often take for granted. So, when a fungal infection like athlete’s foot occurs, we often don’t know how to respond. Here at Sagebrush Dermatology, we want to make getting the treatment you need easier. We provide prescription antifungal medications to improve your symptoms and help you feel comfortable again.
Causes of Athlete’s Foot
Athlete’s foot can be caused by exposure to certain locations where moisture builds up regularly. Some examples include gyms, locker rooms, swimming pools, communal showers, and nail salons. Unfortunately, because it is a highly contagious infection, it can be spread by direct contact from person to person as well.
Signs of Athlete’s Foot
An infection might start out as a little burning or itching between your toes. In many cases, the initial signs of the infection can sometimes be mistaken for eczema or having dry skin. When these signs appear, it’s important to talk to a specialist in order to get properly diagnosed and cared for early on. If not properly addressed, your symptoms can worsen quickly.
How We Can Help
At Sagebrush Dermatology, we offer effective treatments for athlete’s foot in the form of antifungal medications. These medications come in different varieties, including:
- Creams & Lotions
When you arrive for your appointment, we will evaluate your condition and recommend an appropriate option. In most cases, over-the-counter medications may be effective. However, if your condition is advanced, a prescription may be required.
