Skin Conditions

Skin Infections – a common skin infection is Athlete’s Foot. This is a fungal infection that afflicts the skin. Typical symptoms include: moderate to severe itching, redness, skin blisters and peeling. This can be successfully treated with a topical medication. Other common skin diseases of the foot include: psoriasis, anidrosis (dry, cracked skin), eczema and dermatitis, all of which can be helped with appropriate care.

Cracked dry skin around heels and toes is treated successfully with gentle skin debridement and specialised prescribed skin conditioners.

Athlete’s Foot is a fungal skin infection caused by Trichophyton or Epidermophyton and causes itchy, red, cracked or scaly skin.  Skin between the toes is usually affected with itchy skin/ blisters.  This condition,  also called tinea pedis, is very contagious, and is often picked up in showers, locker rooms, swimming pools and other public areas. 


Shoes create a humid, dark and warm environment which allows the fungus to grow.  The fungus can spread from the feet to other parts of the body by contaminated bed sheets or clothing.

Human Foot

“The human foot is a strong, complex structure composed of 26 bones, 33 joints (20 of which actively articulate with each other), and over 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments. Truly a marvel of evolution to be able to balance the bipedal human body during ambulation over all types of terrain.
