Athletes foot history

Common Questions and Answers about Athletes foot history


Avatar m tn We shared the shower, and my friend has a history of athletes foot. I've never knowingly had it. I have recently had a knee op (ACL reconstruction) so walking is steady. Because of getting back into walking, I got a blister on my toe as it was rubbing on another toe, so I stuck a plaster on it. After getting home, within 2 days, my blister had turned into a very large, red, peeling area between my toes. It is a little sticky, and it's now spread to my other toes after 2 days.
Avatar f tn Of course my family that knows is very supportive and doesn't seem too concerned, but I feel kind of alone in my worries (although my husband is awesome and has tried to ease my mind with examples of all of the professional athletes who have been successful with foot abnormalities lol). Of course we are praying for this little abnormality to be an isolated thing. No wonder his kicks have been so obvious! Lol clinging to our sense of humor at this point. Thanks again.
Avatar f tn There is a possibility that you have athletes foot which is a fungal skin problem. In this condition there is dry, flaky skin. There may be peeling, even blisters on one or both soles of the feet. It may cause foot itching, burning, pain, and scaling. Other possibilities are eczemas, dermatitis etc In Lichen planus there are purplish, itchy, flat-topped bumps on the affected areas .It may also affect mucous membranes, genitals, the scalp or nails.
Avatar m tn I don't have it anywhere else except the bottom of my left foot. I don't have any family history of diabetes and I am not over weight. The spot is directly in the middle of my foot up by the ball of my foot. There isn't any calluses near the spot. It is not an itch like dry skin or athletes foot. It feels like it is deeper in the tissue that that. I have not been using and new soap or insoles and there doesn't seem to be anything that triggers it. I am at a loss on this one?
Avatar m tn One thing at a time for me now. I get athletes foot immediately if I indulge in even small amounts of sugar. Thanks for your help.
Avatar n tn Hello, Based on information shared by you there are 2 possibilities Dyshidrotic eczema or fungus/athletes foot. Dyshidrotic eczema causes itchy blisters on hands and feet. It is aggravated by stress and is seen commonly in people with history of allergies.Antiitch medicines may provide symptomatic relief. Fungus or athlete's foot can also cause these blisters. Application of antifungals may be helpful.
Avatar m tn no..its not athletes foot....depending on your and history...
Avatar m tn He is in an awful amount of pain and it last for about 30 minutes then subsides, but he is not one to complaine, but when it happens he topples over in shear agony. It is mostly on the top of the foot and toes. We gave him athletes foot cream and motrin. But I dont think its that.
681361 tn?1226585667 Over time the condition has worsened. I did have a bad case of athletes foot and jock itch and maybe after I treated it I inadvertently rubbed my eyes and the fungus spread to the area of concern. Please help and thanks!
Avatar n tn It itches worse than anything I have ever known. The itch is 50 x worse than athletes foot. Antifungal cream did nothing. A solution of bleach and water stopped the itch for 2 hours then it came back. Do you have any new news on this problem? This discussion is related to <a href=''>Odd itchy red bumps under the skin</a>.
Avatar f tn One of the most common is being on an antibiotc. Have you been on any? And athletes foot can be picked up in many public places like the local swimming pool or wearing someone else's shoes or it can happen if your feet sweat alot and you don't wash and dry them well. Normally I would say you have absolutely no risk for HIV given your history as I understand it, but you say this is consuming and ruining your life.
Avatar n tn I was always able to put weight on it, although I had to walk on the inside of my foot for a few weeks because the little toes up through my outer ankle were tender. Now, a month later it still hurts when I wake up and it is painful to bend my foot inward. Any help I can get to understand this would be much appreciated. Thanks!
669375 tn?1225751143 Yes i did have a question for the antifunal cream i just found athletes foot should i use that one? and the neomycin can i get it over the counter? I dont have insurance so i cant see a dermotaligist..
Avatar n tn I also was tested again for chlamidia and ghonorrea again and was negative. Im not sure what to do, i have athletes foot and am treating myself now so i think i may have jock itch or ringworm but am not sure. any help would be great.
Avatar n tn I'm concerned that this could be herpes. What do you think? Also, I spend a lot of time at the gym and get athletes foot chronically.
Avatar f tn I am a 56 year old women with past history of yeast and ear infections, acne and athletes foot, but I HAVE HAD NO SYMPTOMS since before menopause. Starting on natural remedies, but diet is tough. Need opinions Thanks.

Avatar m tn As usual all the packages say athletes foot cream works on ringworm... and of course it doesn't. Anyway I got the athletes foot cream which has Tolnaftate 1%. The result of that was making the infection that was pretty flat and basically on the way out (see the second ring under the big toe is about 60% formed into a ring, this was almost gone) it made it super red, irritated, and amazingly itchy after using it about 4 days. Soon as I noticed how irritated it was I stopped.
Avatar n tn Hello Dear, Achilles tendonitis is a common overuse injury that tends to occur in middle-age recreational athletes. The overuse causes inflammation that can lead to pain and swelling. Furthermore, Achilles tendonitis can lead to small tears within the tendon, and make it susceptible to rupture. The main complaint associated with Achilles tendonitis is pain over the back of the heel .Patients with Achilles tendonitis usually experience the most significant pain after periods of inactivity.
Avatar m tn Sometimes I get a slight itch on the toes when in the shower but not often. Assuming it was a fungal infection/athletes foot, I again tried some natural remedies for fungal infection of the nails, followed by couple weeks of Micreme, without results. Doctor ordered test for toenails which found no fungal infection, but prescribed nothing and referred me to dermatologist, whom I must wait 6 months to see.
Avatar n tn I then thought it was athletes foot and used some OTC spray. it burned and looked like it made it worse. I now see bumps on my hands. there was no new detergents or clothing. My shower was a little dirty but I cleaned it so I don't know what is the problem. I did find something about dyshidrotic excema but really don't if this is correct.
Avatar n tn They're only on the left food, right between the balls, just above the arch 2. I have a history of Athlete's foot on the same foot, though it hasn't flared in years 3. The pustules are relatively small, about the size of a sewing pin head, maybe a bit smaller 4. They itch something positively FIERCE 5. The skin all over that area is dried, cracking and flaking very badly, all across the top of my foot and even up between most of my toes 5.
Avatar n tn Later I experienced what I thought was something similar and it cleared up really fast with anti fungal creams usually used for athletes foot. I'd be concerned about your circulation and get it checked at the doctors, though.
Avatar f tn I have had increased back pain (on and off) in the chest area and lumbar area over the past year with numbness in my foot. I have had repeated respiratory/sinus issues over the past three months and have had out of range white blood cell counts for over a year. I have a family history of arthritis (osteoarthritis for my mother at 45 yr. old, rheumatoid arthritis for my aunt at 36 yrs. old). I do have Chiari Malfornia w/ syrinx (C2-C6) and have had two decompression surgeries.
Avatar n tn Previously I have bought womens creme for vaginal yeast infections and it got rid of it. This time I bought a regular antifungal creme (clotrimazole) for athletes foot and jock itch and it seems to be doing the trick. Check out my post and let me know if you have had any of the same things before and if you know what has caused your prostate problems in the past. I would appreciate it!
Avatar m tn The blister doesnt appear to be waterfilled, just a hard and toughlike. I've got a a history of jock itch and athletes foot(which I cant help but scatch at times), but I have never developed this type of blister. It has been here for amost 4 weeks and doesnt appear to be going away. I am sexual active so an std could be a possibility. I havent had any outbreaks on my penis, so I'm wondering if scratching a fungal infection might produce these?
Avatar m tn this fungus is a commensal organism, it lives with us,doesnt harm most of the time but just there, i really think you get it from exposure to athletes foot. get some over the counter cream for athletes foot, clotrimazole. it should take care of it. 84 days, thats 12 weeks, when i tested at 12 weeks, i thought it was to short of time, its not, 6 weeks is very reliable, 8 weeks is pretty conclusive, and 12 weeks and above, well your just following cdc and tx dept health standards.
Avatar f tn There is only one thing I can think of that is causing these mild OBs. I have had on and off, for a year and a bit, athletes foot. I told my doctor this at the meet and greet and she gave me Apo-Terbinafine. She said that the athletes foot is probably what is weakening my immune system. What do you think?
Avatar m tn I do have a history of athletes foot and a case of ring worm located on the insides of my thighs. Though the ring worm was years ago. I do have chronic dry skin issues. And should mention I've been feel as if I have a mild case of athletes foot trying to pop up right now, as I have been jogging regularly and tend to wear the same tennis shoes and have been experiencing mild itching around my feet. Should I have fears or concerns about this being something serious?
