Posts by tag: athlete's foot

As a parent, I've learned that athlete's foot can affect children too, not just adults. The main cause is a fungus called Trichophyton, which thrives in warm and moist environments, like public pools and locker rooms. When it comes to symptoms, my research showed that kids may experience itchy, scaly, and cracked skin between their toes. To treat athlete's foot in children, over-the-counter antifungal creams can be effective, but it's always a good idea to consult with a pediatrician first. And don't forget, prevention is key - remind your kids to always wear flip-flops in public showers and keep their feet clean and dry!
