Known risk factors for athlete's foot

Healthy skin, through its multilayer structure and healthy microbiological colonization of the dermal flora, is a protective barrier against pathogenic fungal infections.

Not all contact with dermatophytes necessarily causes athlete's foot.

Only when the skin's natural defense mechanisms are weakened does unwanted fungi and bacteria have a free path, can they spread further and cause infections.

Among the risk factors that negatively affect the protective function of the skin and can favor the spread of harmful germs are basic diseases such as:

Mellitus diabetes.
Circulatory disorders
Peripheral neuropathy.
Foot deformities.
Organ operations or transplants.
Depressed immune system.
Excessive sweating of the feet.
