Global Tinea Pedis Treatment Market: Snapshot

Athlete's foot known medically as tinea pedis, is a common skin infection of the feet caused by various kinds of fungi. Signs and symptoms often include itching, scaling, cracking and redness. In rare cases, the skin may blister. Athlete's foot fungus may infect any part of the foot, but most often grows between the toes. Apart from these areas, the fungus might develop at the bottom of the foot, under nails, on hands, and nearby skin areas.

Tinea pedis is a member of the group of diseases known as tinea, and is mainly caused by a number of different fungi.  Trichophyton, Epidermophyton, and Microsporum, are some of the major fungi types that may cause the tinea pedis ailment. The condition is typically acquired by coming into contact with infected skin or also with the fungi type mentioned above from the environment. Common places where the fungi can survive are around swimming pools and in locker rooms; they may also be spread from other animals. Usually diagnosis is made on the basis of signs and symptoms; however, it can be confirmed either by studying cultures or by observing hyphae using a microscope.

Some methods of prevention include avoiding walking barefoot in public showers, keeping toenails short, wearing clean shoes, and changing socks daily. When infected, the feet should be kept dry and clean, and wearing sandals or floaters may help. Treatment can either be carried out with antifungal medication applied to the skin such as clotrimazole. For persistent infections, medication such as terbinafine need to be administered through the oral cavity. The use of these medicines is typically recommended for four weeks.

Globally, athlete's foot affects about 15% of the population, and males are more often affected than females. It occurs most frequently in older children or younger adults. Historically, the disease is believed to have been a rare condition and was more frequent in the 1900s.
