What can cause a secondary infection on Athlete's foot secondary?

Foot infection

Athlete's foot is a fungal infection that can break down the normal covering of skin and render the area more susceptible to a secondary infection. Secondary infections can include bacterial infections.

Can athlete's foot lead to nail fungus infection? I have athlete's foot now and using treatment twice a day. My biggest fear is that it will cause ugly nail fungus. Is this possible or is that something completely different? .

Athlete's foot/nail

Extremity-lower-foot
The most common organism in athlete's foot is also the same because of nail fungus. It is very important that treatment begin as soon as possible to prevent the spread of the fungus to the nails. Nail fungus is much more difficult to treat.

What is the cause of athlete's foot?

Fungus

Extremity-foot
Athlete's foot is caused by a fungal infection of the skin. These types of fungus, known as dermatophytes can infect skin, especially if conditions are right. Athlete's foot, ringworm, jock itch are all fungal infections of the skin, just in different locations of the body.

Dr. Howard R. Fox answered:

My husband's doc assessed his hernia repair site swelling and associated it with his athletes foot... Is this accurate?

The only connection

Athletes_foot
I can conjure up would be if he developed a fungal infection to his hernia site, which is pretty rare. If that IS the case, he would need oral anti-fungal medicine, but only after a positive fungal culture of the hernia site. I have to admit, though, this is a stretch. I like the idea of a second opinion.

What causes athlete's foot?

Fungus

Extremity-foot
Fungus lives almost everywhere and it loves dark, wet areas like a foot in a sock in a shoe...

How can i get rid of athlete's foot?

Ddffgghh

Fungal_infection
If the condition can not be resolved with topical medications one can utilize oral medication and if this is truly a fungal infection it should resolve within a month or 2. It will need to be prescribed by your physician.
