  • TORONTO PODIATRIST DISCUSSES ATHLETE'S FOOT IN THE TORONTO STAR 25/06/2013

TORONTO PODIATRIST, MR. ROBERT CHELIN STATED IN AN ARTICLE IN THE TORONTO STAR ON 25/06/2013, "MY FEET ARE KILLING ME!  WHO HASN'T UTTERED THAT AT THE END OF  AN EXTRA LONG DAY?  BUT IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY -- MANY COMMON FOOT PROBLEMS ARE PREVENTABLE AND TREATABLE.  ATHLETE'S FOOT IS CAUSED BY FUNGUS, AND IS ONE OF THE BETTER KNOWN FOOT MALADIES.  LOOK FOR SCALING AND FLAKING, ESPECIALLY ON THE SOLES AND BETWEEN THE TOES:  ITCHING: AND AREAS THAT ARE INFLAMED."

PODIATRIST CHELIN STATES, "TO AVOID IT, DON'T WALK BAREFOOT, POINTING OUT IT'S OFTEN PICKED UP IN COMMUNAL AREAS SUCH AS CHANGE ROOMS.  DRY YOUR FEET PROPERLY, ALWAYS CHANGE YOUR SOCKS AND GIVE YOUR SHOES A CHANCE TO DRY OUT IF PERSPIRATION IS HEAVY.  THE FUNGUS NEEDS A WARM MOIST ENVIRONMENT TO INCUBATE, AND SHOES ARE THE PERFECT SPOT."

AT ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS WE SEE A LOT OF CASES OF ATHLETES FOOT INFECTIONS AND HAVE A GREAT TRACK RECORD OF SUCCESSFUL TREATMENT.  IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE WOULD LIKE HONEST, COMPETENT ADVISE OR FOOT CARE, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT OUR FOOT CLINIC AT 416-465-8737.
