Benign germs and fungi live naturally on your skin, but if these organisms reproduce your skin can become infected. A collection of fungi called dermatophytes is accountable for athlete’s foot. Dermatophytes live in and feed off dead skin tissue. Your feet offer a warm, dark and humid atmosphere – perfect settings for the fungi to live and increase.
Athlete’s foot spreads very effortlessly. It can be passed from person to person through dirty towels, clothing and surfaces.
The fungi can survive and increase in warm and humid places, like swimming pools, showers and changing rooms. Wearing pool shoes or flip-flops can help guard against contracting the fungus.
Prescription/Custom Made Orthotics
Practical orthoses are arranged after a biomechanical valuation and a plaster casting (taking a mould) of the foot. They are made at a laboratory from your podiatrist’s prescription to align the structure of the foot in its most functionally efficient position. The orthotic, moulded from the cast, is designed to stabilize the foot and to prevent it from moving into an unbalanced position while walking or running. Prescription orthotics are typically made of a permanent material with a shock absorbing covering. Devices last for years and can be adapted at any time.
