Athleteʹs Foot

Symptoms of Athlete’s Foot

Common symptoms include the following:

  •     itching
  •     stinging and burning between the toes and/or on the soles of the feet
  •     itchy blisters
  •     cracking and peeling skin, especially between the toes and on the soles of the feet
  •     excessive dryness of the skin of the feet

Athlete’s foot is usually “interdigital” (occurring between the toes). It also manifests in what is called a “moccasin” pattern--thickening of the skin and a rash on the sole and heel of the foot--and in blisters that occur between the toes, on the sole and heel, and occasionally on the top of the foot.

Athlete’s foot may also be accompanied by toenail fungus (onychomychosis), which can occur with or without the symptoms of athlete’s foot.
