How do I know if I have athlete's foot?

Foot & ankle specialists

In order to determine if it is athlete's foot, we can look at the symptoms developed. The most common is cracked, scaly, and peeling skin on the toes and sides of the feet. In addition, it can be accompanied by red, itchy, burning or stinging skin and blisters that ooze or crust over. But it must also be taken into account that it can be asymptomatic, so it could be transmitted more easily in these cases.

There are different types of athlete's foot infections:

Interdigital: more frequent, in one or all the fingers. It can be dry (desquamation and erosion) or moist (hyperkeratosis with maceration).
Ulcerative: extension of the interdigital type with deeper lesions due to maceration and secondary bacterial infection.
Moccasin: starts with dryness and itching, can lead to cracks.
Inflammatory: blisters on non-occluded skin.
Dermatophytid: vesicular eruption of the fingers or palms of the hands secondary to the inflammatory type. There may also be a combined infection, that is, superinfection by Candida and some bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus, group A streptococcus, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa) can occur.
