Lindsey Lohan recently returned from her latest stint in rehab with another recurrent problem, athlete’s foot. While ‘Lilo’ (as the press has come to call her) is not formally known for her athletic feats, her other feet are definitely her source of attention now. As reported in the National Inquirer in an interview with one of her friends, “Lilo is horrified by her athlete’s foot…she’s suffered from smelly feet ever since she was a teenager…it’s been a hugely embarrassing cross to bear.”. Unfortunately, she is one of the many sufferers of athlete’s foot, a problem that walks into my office on a near daily basis.

I mentioned in a previous post about the best way to manage and control your ‘winter tinea’ or cold months induced athlete’s foot. Winter tinea is nearly identical to the athlete’s foot discussed here, so you should read about my signs that you may have athlete’s foot here. If you’re located in DC or in the Anne Arundel County, coming into my office at Crofton Podiatry in Crofton, Maryland just outside of Bowie and Annapolis is the best way to guarantee prompt resolution and rid that itchy, painful annoyance. For now, read below for my best tips on how to keep athlete’s foot at bay.

Dr. Toll’s best tips for preventing athlete’s foot:

·         Keep your feet well moisturized with lotion

·         Keep nails short, and peel off loose skin

·         Avoid walking barefoot, use sandals where possible

·         Seek podiatrist advice for anti-fungal therapy

·         Examine feet daily and visit your doctor if any suspicious blisters or cuts are present

Currently, the National Inquirer is attributing the fungal athlete’s foot infection to be the source of Miss Lohan’s embarrassing foot odor. While this may be the case, it is more likely just another natural phenomenon of the body unrelated to her infection. Just like with athlete’s foot, there are many ways to deal with inherently bad smelling feet, and it is important that you speak withknowledgeable professionals in your area to find a resolution.
