Two of the most common fungal skin infections are athletes foot and sweat rash.Sweat rash is caused by candida, a yeast-like fungus that usually lives har mlessly on our skin. However. the natural balance that normally keeps this fungus under control can be upset by factors such as sweating, tight or synthetic clothing and cosmetic preparations such as bath additives.When levels of the yeast increase, the skin can develop the following symptoms: persistent burning and itching, soreness, a variety of red patches or blemishes as well as a softened and soggy appearance.Sweat rash can appear anywhere on the body, but is more likely to occur where folds of skin rub against each other, such as: under the breasts, under arms, around the groin and also on the back.Athletes foot is caused by another sort of fungus that usually lives har mlessly on our skin and in our environment. The natural balance that normally keeps this fungus under control can be upset by factors such as damp moist conditions. This could happen, for example, through regularly wearing training shoes that keep the feet hot and sweaty.Under these circumstances the fungus can become troublesome and the following symptoms may develop: itching or burning sensation, redness between the toes, left untreated this may develop into cracked and flaking skin between the toes, or on the soles of the feet.If you are unsure whether you have either of these conditions, speak to your pharmacist or doctor.
