Dear Malene

Athlete's foot is a very common skin infection, however usually for children older than four years of age. I would also recommend that you use a fungicide to get rid of the infection, however, the fungicide does not prevent to develop athlete's foot again. A fungal infection thrives in humid environments, and it is therefore important that you make sure that your son's feet are completely dry before you put on his socks. Use e.g. a hairdryer and put talcum powder or similar into his socks. Change his socks at least twice a day and if his feet has become damp, and leave him barefooted as much as possible.

Athlete's foot is contagious. If somebody in your family has athlete's foot, do not share towels with them, and make sure possibly contaminated areas are regularly washed.

I hope this is helpful:o)

Kind regards,
