Lohan Has Fungal Infection in Feet
Lindsay Lohan, the subject of a new documentary series currently being broadcast on the Oprah Winfrey Network, is apparently suffering from athlete’s foot. The National Inquirer claims that the actress has a fungal infection that is exacerbating a foot odor problem she’s had for most of her life.
“Lilo’s horrified by her athlete’s foot,” states a “friend” of the actress. “She has no idea where she caught it because she’s always so careful in communal bathrooms and spas. But she’s suffered smelly feet ever since she was a teenager, and it’s been a hugely embarrassing cross to bear.”
Athlete’s foot is an irritating condition that can be prevented with proper foot care. If you have any questions about athlete’s foot, talk to a podiatrist like Dr. Andrew H. Cohen of Mid-Michigan Foot and Ankle Center. Dr. Cohen will explain to you how fungal infections develop and recommend ways to protect your feet from this kind of condition.
Athlete’s Foot: The Sole Story
If you suffer from itching, burning, dry, and flaking feet, this may be a sign of athlete's foot. Athlete's foot, also known as tinea pedis, can be extremely contagious, and it often infects shower floors, gyms, socks and shoes, and anywhere else feet may come in contact with. It is commonly found in public changing areas and bathrooms, dormitory style living quarters, around locker rooms and public swimming pools. This condition can also be prevalent in "commons" areas in prisons and residential care facilities.
Solutions to Combat Athlete’s Foot
- Hydrate your feet by using lotion
- Buff off nails
- Use of anti-fungal product
- Examine feet and visit your doctor if any suspicious blisters or cuts are present.
What is Tinea?
- Athlete’s foot is often caused by the same fungus that causes ringworm (tinea).
- Tinea can invade other parts of the body as well, if the proper thriving conditions for it are met.
- Tinea thrives in mostly dark, warm and moist environments.
- Although many people never experience athlete’s foot, around 70% of the population may suffer from tinea at some point.
