Athletes Foot

Athletes Foot is a very common skin infection caused by fungus. Signs and Symptoms of athlete’s foot could involve itching, redness, or peeling flaky skin. It can infect any part of the foot but most commonly grows in between the toes and or around the sole of the foot.

Not all dry flaky skin on the foot needs a moisturiser. In many cases dry powdery appearance may indicate a non – symptomatic fungal infection.

The fungal infection thrives in warm and moist environments: for example, tight fitting shoes or trainers and can be spread by direct contact such as a towel that has come into contact with the fungus and/or gym flooring.

Athletes foot can be easily diagnosed and treatments are very effective. If you think you may be experiencing symptoms of athlete’s foot arrange an appointment today to put your mind at ease.

I have been seeing Louise for a complex muscle wasting disease for nearly a year now. She has been helping to reduce pain in my back, shoulder and neck area. This week I had the muscle building treatment and I can honestly say that my posture is so much better and I can now lift my arms without any pain. I cannot wait to see what the future brings. Thank you so much Louise.

Today I had a long overdue ingrowing toenail issue resolved with Gold Standard footcare. Louise was a a brilliant example of a professional that takes pride in their work and made the whole procedure painless and relaxing. As a person that has had a previously bad experience on the NHS that left me worried about the procedure I can assure anyone going for nail surgery that with Gold Standard footcare you have nothing to worry about and the experience will be pain free and quick. Thank you Louise.
