Hello Catharina, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Water fleas or tinea pedis is a skin disease caused by a fungal infection. Usually the symptoms caused by water fleas such as itching, white or reddish spots, scaly, dry, etc. The situation or signs of these symptoms are susceptible, especially if the feet are wet and damp, so many people who rarely maintain foot hygiene are experienced. For example, rarely wash your feet or change socks. Leaving your feet wet and moist for extended periods of time can also trigger the appearance of water fleas.
Some of the factors that can cause or increase the risk of getting water fleas / fungal infections are using tight and closed shoes, walking barefoot, soles often sweating, not maintaining foot hygiene (rarely washing feet after activity / using dirty socks), there are injuries to the fingers or soles of the feet, using personal objects in turn (such as towels, socks, shoes).
Complaints or symptoms that can arise from this yeast infection are as follows:
appearance of white or reddish rashes
itching and scaling
skin looks dry and thickened
The skin looks cracked and peeling
Water fleas or tinea pedis can be transmitted through contact with skin that is infected with fungus or contaminated objects. Water lice can also become increasingly heavy and spread if not treated quickly. Water lice are getting worse can cause inflammation in the local lymph nodes, spread to the instep, calves, thighs, hands, and others. Even secondary infections can occur in severe cases.
Some actions you can currently take are:
keep the feet dry and not moist
use shoes that are not too tight
use socks if you have sweaty feet
use footwear when outside the house, especially in public places such as swimming pools, or public toilet
Avoid alternating use of footwear
use a topical fungus medication / ointment on the affected skin
consult a doctor if the complaint becomes more severe so that the infection does not spread and cause complications.
That's all the answers I can give.
Thank you, good luck always :)
