Decades of Experience to Assist You
Fungus can grow on the feet and nails for many different reasons, but it thrives in warm, moist areas. If you frequently wear shoes or repeatedly wear the same pair of socks without washing them or your feet, you may start to develop athlete's foot or nail fungus. Our Podiatrists at Newtown Foot & Ankle Specialists have more than 40 years of experience treating all types of foot fungus.
Treating Common Fungus Problems
It is always best to see a specialist as soon as you start to notice the burning or itchy signs of fungus, rather than putting off treatment. We can provide you with effective, rapid treatment to help clear up the fungus and relieve your pain and discomfort.
Our Newtown foot doctor can treat you for these fungus problems:
- Athlete's foot (Tinea Pedis)
- Fungal nails
Effective Athlete's Foot Treatment in Newtown
The most common cause of athlete's foot is contact between feet and areas where athlete's foot already exists, such as locker rooms or community showers. These warm, wet areas are excellent breeding ground for athlete's foot and can quickly lead to the growth of foot fungus. Skin to skin contact can also lead to the development of athlete's foot in some cases.
If you have noticed signs of athlete's foot, such as blisters, dry skin, burning, or itching, our Newtown foot doctor can provide you with treatment. Treatment may include antifungal medication, oral medication, and special care for your feet. It is important that you keep your feet clean and dry at all times to help get rid of and prevent the regrowth of foot fungus.
