Service Name: Athlete's Foot Treatment


Athlete's foot, a common fungal infection affecting the feet, is known for causing itching, redness, and cracking skin. OnPoint Urgent Care Houston offers specialized treatment for athlete's foot, focusing on rapid relief of symptoms and prevention of recurrence.

Service Description:

Our medical team at OnPoint Urgent Care Houston is experienced in diagnosing and treating athlete's foot. We provide effective, evidence-based treatments tailored to the severity and type of the infection. Understanding that athlete's foot can be both uncomfortable and persistent, we focus on not only treating the current infection but also on educating patients on how to prevent future infections.

Symptoms and Causes of Athlete's Foot:

Athlete's foot typically presents with:

  • Itching, Stinging, and Burning: Especially between the toes and on the soles of the feet.
  • Cracked, Peeling, or Scaly Skin: Commonly found on the feet and between the toes.
  • Dryness and Redness: Particularly on the soles and sides of the feet.
  • Blisters: That may itch or leak fluid.

The infection is usually caused by fungal organisms thriving in warm, moist environments, making places like gym showers and pool decks common areas for contracting the condition.

Comprehensive Treatment Approach:

  • Clinical Assessment: Including a physical examination of the feet and discussion of symptoms.
  • Topical Antifungal Medications: Such as creams, sprays, or powders to directly target the fungus.
  • Oral Antifungal Medications: In more severe or resistant cases, oral medications may be prescribed.
  • Foot Care and Hygiene Advice: Educating patients on proper foot hygiene, moisture control, and footwear choices to prevent reinfection.
  • Lifestyle Modifications: Guidance on avoiding environments that contribute to fungal growth.
  • Follow-Up Care: Ensuring the infection is fully resolved and providing ongoing support and advice.

When to Seek Treatment for Athlete's Foot:

Consult a healthcare provider if:

  • Over-the-counter treatments are ineffective.
  • The infection is recurrent or severe.
  • There are signs of secondary infection, such as increased pain, swelling, or pus.

Importance of Professional Care:

Professional treatment of athlete's foot is important to effectively eradicate the infection, relieve discomfort, and prevent complications like bacterial infections. Expert care also provides valuable education on preventing future infections.
