Athletes foot also known as Tinea Pedis is caused by a contagious dermatophyte that thrives in warm, moist places such as the toe boxes of shoes. If there is a small crack in the skin the fungus (Tinea Rubrum) can enter the area and will begin to grow out of control leading to a dry, red, itchy, scaly rash on the bottoms and sides of the feet. If the spaces between toes become infected the fungi is called Tinea Mentagrophytes.
Corn / Calluses
Corns and calluses are due to repetitive constant friction on weight bearing surfaces that decrease the fat pad between the skin and the bone. The bodies natural response is to lay down harder tissue to help protect the area that is being traumatized. Once enough of the fat pad is destroyed the area then forms a callus that rubs against the nerve and bone and becomes painful from lack of cushioning.
At Mid-Ohio Foot & Ankle Specialists we obtain X-rays to review the structure and alignment of the bones in the foot that are causing the friction in the shoes. Once the area of the Callous / Corn is associated with the underlying boney cause, treatment options can be given to remedy the recurrence of the painful Corns / Calluses.
