Don't Dismiss "Dry Feet"
Because often times, that dryness is really Athlete's Foot (which, incidentally, has nothing to do with being an athlete), a fungal infection also known as tinea pedis. Redness, itching, scaling, and flaking could be caused by either condition, but while dry feet can be relieved with moisturizers, Athlete's Foot will only get worse. If left unchecked, the fungus can spread under your nails or to other areas of your body, including your groin. So at first sign of irritated skin on your feet, take action.
