Treatments for Athlete’s Foot Blisters

Tuesday, 31 August 2021 00:00

Athlete’s foot is a fungal infection of the skin of the feet. It is characterized by a red, itchy, peeling rash on the soles of the feet or in between the toes. Athlete’s foot can also cause blisters to form on the feet. Athlete’s foot can be treated with both over-the-counter and prescription antifungal medications. Most over-the-counter medications are topical and applied directly to the skin. Prescription medications can be topical, such as antifungal creams and powders, or oral. Your doctor may also prescribe corticosteroid cream to reduce swelling and redness. If you have athlete’s foot, a podiatrist can help find the right treatment for you.
