The most common fungal infections of skin are those which occur on the feet. Footwear creates the necessary conditions of moisture and warmth between the toes and communal activity permits the spread of infection. Swimming baths and changing rooms arc the most frequent source of infection.
Other fungal infections of the skin may appear as:
Toenails can also be infected, with the nail becoming thickened, brittle, and yellowish-brown in colour, eventually developing a 'worm-eaten' or porous appearance.
What to do.
If you have a fungal infection donít spread it
Most creams and powders should be applied twice daily
Toenail infections are more difficult to clear totally than skin infections. Because the nail thickens with fungal infection, it is best for your State Registered Chiropodist/Podiatrist to thin the nail down as far as possible before using a treatment such as a paint or cream. This enables the treatment to reach the affected area in the most effective way.
Tablets are available on prescription only. Your State Registered Chiropodist will advise you. Always read the label.
