What is Athlete’s Foot?

Athlete's foot is a contagious fungal infection. It is caused by a certain kind of fungi that love warm, moist conditions (like in your boots or shoes).

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Athlete’s foot causes itchy, dry, cracking skin on the foot (but symptoms vary)
  • Athlete’s foot affects 1 in 5 people
  • Athlete’s foot can be cured with antifungal treatments like LamisilAT®
  • Everyone is susceptible to athlete’s foot, not just athletes

LamisilAT® is proven to cure most athlete's foot between the toes with 1 week of treatment.

#1: Athlete’s foot doesn’t need treatment.

FALSE: In most cases, athlete's foot will not disappear on its own – in fact, it could spread. Simple contact is all you need to spread it to your groin, hands, or other people. Use LamisilAT®, proven to cure most athlete’s foot.

#2: Only athletes get athlete’s foot.

FALSE: Athlete’s foot is spread on contact, so anyone can get it. Athletes are more likely to get it because of their lifestyle. However, anyone wearing protective footwear (like military personnel), people who live in warm climates, and people with diabetes are all at higher risk.

#3: Moisturizer is a good treatment for athlete’s foot.

FALSE: NEVER use moisturizer as a treatment for athlete’s foot! That itch is not from dry skin. Your skin looks dry and cracked because it has a fungal infection. Use the proper treatment that is proven to cure.

#4: As soon as my symptoms are gone, my athlete’s foot is cured.

FALSE: LamisilAT® eases symptoms quickly, but you must continue treatment for the full 7 days to cure your infection. Stopping treatment too early can lead to recurring infections.

#5: Medicated powders do not cure athlete’s foot.

TRUE: While medicated foot powders can keep your feet dry and ease some of the itching of athlete’s foot, these products do not cure the infection. Only antifungal products like LamisilAT® Cream or Spray can cure the infection in addition to soothing symptoms.
