Lindsay Lohan’s Secret ShameThe National Inquirerclaims that Lindsay Lohan has been contending with athlete’s foot. The Inquirer’s sources believe that the fungal condition is behind Lohan’s struggle with bad smelling feet that has affected her for years.

“Lilo’s horrified by her athlete’s foot,” one of the actress’ friends has stated. “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.” Lohan will be the subject of an Oprah Winfrey network 8-part documentary on drug use and rehabilitation.

Athlete’s foot can cause both physical and emotional discomfort. If you have athlete’s foot, see podiatrist Dr. Alan J. Discont of Family Foot & Ankle Care, PC. Dr. Discont can treat all your foot and ankle conditions.   

What is Athlete’s Foot?

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.

Athlete's FootAthlete’s foot is a bother and not something that is an enjoyable thing to endure. According to Angie Ferguson an exercise physiologist from Fort Myers, if you are a resident of a warm location like Florida, California, or Arizona to name a few, you might be more prone to developing athlete’s foot than that of someone living in a slightly cooler location.

Once you develop athlete’s foot, the fungus tends to travel from the third toe to the fourth and fifth one. Athlete’s foot is most commonly contracted on bare floors such as locker rooms, pool decks, public showers, or any sort of changing rooms. If you do become infected with the condition, it can easily be treated with over the counter medication.

Anyone is susceptible in attaining Athlete’s foot, but can be easily avoided following the right preventative care and treatment. A podiatrist like Dr. Zahid Ladha of Foot First Podiatry Center will be able to determine your condition and follow the appropriate treatment options for foot care needs.
