What kind of doctor should I see for athletes foot?

Podiatrist. A podiatrist or a dermatologist can diagnose and treat athlete's foot fungus.
A common problem. Most patients with athlete's foot are able to take care of it with otc meds. Certainly a podiatrist can treat the condition but primary care doctors are all certainly capable of treating it. However, it is an easy thing to get, an easy thing to treat but an easy thing to get again!
FOOT DOCTOR. You have athlete foot. Who else know more about feet than a foot doctor? See you podiatrist.
Primary MD. For straight forward athlete's foot i bet your primary md can treat it well. If not a podiatrist will work well.
Athletes foot. You could see either a family medicine doctor, a dermatologist or a podiatrist. You should call your regular doctor first and ask them if they treat the problem.
A PODIATRIST! The best otc medication (in my opinion) is lotrimin (clotrimazole) ultra. Socks should be a synthetic material (i know i'll take heat for this) like those manufactured by thorlo [http://www.Thorlo.Com/]. Dilute vinegar soaks are good as well. Dry the inside of your shoes by placing them up-side down over an air return vent in your home overnight.

I went to the doctors and he said that I have athletes foot so he gave my a topical cream but I was scratching it and then it just became worse, and t?

Mix n match. So why not mix the topical anti fungal cream with just a little topical hydro-cortisone cream (otc). This should not only take care of the fungus but also stop the itch. Read more...

Hi doctors, was just wondering what is foot fungus and athletes foot? Are they connected?

Same Thing... The best otc medication (in my opinion) is lotrimin (clotrimazole) ultra. Socks should be a synthetic material like those manufactured by thorlo [http://www.Thorlo.Com/]. Dilute vinegar soaks are good as well. A new product called "clean sweep" can be used to sterilize the inside of your shoes too.

Is it true that Spuramox 200 is bad news for my liver? I got athletes foot that wont go away and my doc in S.A. Prescribed it.

Whoa. First, Supramox is Amoxicillin and is not an appropriate treatment for athlete's foot. Second, you're doing yourself a disservice by accepting a prescription from your physician, not asking about risks versus benefit, reading some untruths on the internet, and then coming and asking us what you should do. Use your physician appropriately. And Amoxicillin isn't a liver poison. Read more...

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

The only connection. 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. Read more...
