Athlete’s Foot

Summer has finally arrived which means it’s fungus season in St. Louis!

While it may not be what you’ve been looking forward to in the warmer months, athlete’s foot is much more common in warm weather. And no, you don’t have to be an athlete to get it.

Athlete’s foot is an infection caused by fungus that thrives in damp, dark areas such as showers, locker rooms and the insides of your shoes.

It produces itchy, dry, scaling skin, and in advanced cases, can cause inflammation and blisters.

Not the kind of thing you want to show off with your summer flip-flops.

Fortunately athlete’s foot is easy to treat and even easier to prevent.
