Symptoms Of Athlete's Foot

The common occurrence of athlete's foot is between the toes. The skin peels, forms scales and cracks. Sometimes blisters form on a patch. The fungus may also attack the soles making them dry. The feet may develop burning sensation and itch. If the fungus attacks the toenails, it becomes difficult to cure. This is because toenails are thick and it is difficult for topical medication to reach inside. If you develop athlete's foot in your toenails, they will become thick and may also split. Since conditions such as psoriasis affect the nails in similar way, it is better to get proper diagnosis from a doctor.
