The Best Cure For Athlete's Foot

Athlete's foot is caused by a fungus that is stimulated by moisture. Avoid it by not sharing footwear and making sure you don't wear the same shoes every day. Let things dry out. Should you catch it anyway, Lamisil and other over-the-counter products work effectively.

The fungus causes a break in the skin. Scratching introduces bacteria, which can cause cellulitis and require hospitalization.
