ABSTRACT

Tinea pedis, a fungal infection of the feet, especially within the toe webs and soles was studied using 40 soldiers (20men and 20women) as a case study. This infection is related to footwear having been considered to be a new dermatophytosis. The soldiers have the toe webs and soles cleaned with alcohol or sterile water and the lesions scrapped with sterile scalpel and placed between two glass slides with a drop of 10-20% kOH and then viewed under microscope. Branched hyphae and arthroconidia formation showed the presence of Tinea pedis. The result showed that 10 men(25%) only were afflicted while the women were free. It is believed that more continuance wearing of shoes were a risk factor.
