Understanding athlete's foot

The most important thing you need to know about athlete’s foot is that it’s very contagious. You can easily catch the infection through skin-to-skin contact or through contact with contaminated surfaces. Also, if left untreated it is much more likely to return, and the fungus can spread to other areas of your body or to your loved ones.

TO BE REPLACED WITH LOCAL CONSUMER RECO

I've had athlete's foot for a while and it's come and gone, but once it returned it was there to stay. My doctor recommended athlete's foot cream and once I tried Canesten I haven't noticed any returning symptoms.
