Foot Fungus

Getting Started

When skin between the toes itches, reddens and peels, the diagnosis is usually clear: athlete's foot. Almost one in three Germans occasionally suffers from these symptoms. In the summer when feet tend to sweat more, there is a greater risk of infection associated with foot fungus.


Foot fungus is easy to catch, especially when walking barefoot. Once socks and shoes are put on, the fungus has the optimal warmth and humidity it needs to grow. Feet sweat in closed shoes. This sweat generally collects in the front of the foot allowing the fungus to easily penetrate the skin. This mixed with the natural warmth of feet can lead to a fungal infection. Many people have fungus on their skin even though it is not visible. (1)
