Athlete’s Foot Infection 

Scaly, red itchy feet can be a sign of an Athlete’s Foot infection called Tinea Pedis. This is a fungal infection common on the foot because most shoes provide a perfect environment for growth – darkness, and moisture.

It can be prevalent between the toes and may cause a break in the skin, leading to a more severe cellulitis condition. A malodor can also be present, and small clear vesicles may be visible.

Natural tips:

  • Epsom salt soaks with tea tree essential oil for 20 minutes each day.
  • Soak with lukewarm green tea.
  • Apply 1-2 drops of tea tree essential oil daily to feet.
  • Treat your shoes with Tea Tree oil or On Guard blend essential oil.

Preventative measures:

Avoid this infection by wearing socks in communal areas, changing socks when they get wet, and avoiding walking in wet shoes.
