Frequently Asked Questions

What Will Happen If Athlete’s Foot Is Left Untreated?

If athlete's foot is left untreated, it can spread to other parts of the body, including the toenails, soles of the feet, and even the palms of the hands. It can also lead to more severe symptoms such as blistering, cracking, and peeling of the skin, as well as pain and discomfort when walking or wearing shoes. 



Additionally, if the infection is not treated, it can be transmitted to other people through contact with contaminated surfaces or objects. In rare cases, it can lead to serious complications such as cellulitis (a bacterial infection of the skin and subcutaneous tissue) or even sepsis (a severe systemic infection). Therefore, it is important to seek treatment for athlete's foot as soon as possible to prevent these potential complications.

Can Athlete’s Foot Go Away On Its Own?

Athlete's foot can go away on its own in some cases, but it is generally recommended to seek treatment to prevent the infection from spreading or recurring. Without treatment, athlete's foot may persist or worsen, leading to additional symptoms such as cracking and peeling skin, blisters, or toenail fungus. It is important to keep the affected area clean and dry, and to avoid sharing towels, shoes, or other personal items with others to prevent the spread of the infection.

Do I Have To Throw Away My Shoes And Socks If I Have Athlete’s Foot?

No, you do not have to throw away your shoes and socks if you have athlete's foot. However, it is important to thoroughly clean and disinfect your shoes and socks to prevent the infection from spreading. You can do this by washing them in hot water with a disinfectant detergent or soaking them in a solution of equal parts water and household bleach. It is also recommended to wear sandals or flip-flops until the infection has cleared up to allow your feet to breathe and reduce the risk of re-infection.
