How Do Skin Issues Affect Feet?
Inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema, athlete’s foot, and fungal infections can impact the health and mobility of your feet. Some skin disorders like contact dermatitis and athlete’s foot are temporary and relatively minor. Other skin conditions can extremely painful and even life-threatening. Skin conditions can be genetic or infectious in nature.
What are the Symptoms of Skin Infections?
Infection, whether fungal, bacterial, or viral primarily causes skin rashes and lesions when the infection affects the feet. Irritations and allergic reactions can also result in skin rashes. Many different skin conditions can display similar symptoms, so it is best to have a trained professional diagnose a skin condition.
