Red, scaly, itchy patches on your feet are usually the first signs you have picked up a fungal infection. While this is more common in the humid seasons, it can occur any time of year. These infections are contagious, so they can easily be acquired by walking barefoot in hotel rooms, pools, or any public place. Once you have an infection, it is important to treat it quickly as you can pass it on.
Most over the counter medications are adequate, but if you do not see clearing after two to three weeks, or if it worsens, you should make an appointment.
