Tinea pedis is the medical term for athlete’s foot. Patients often complain of itchiness, redness, and scaling. It can manifest in 2 ways: on the bottom of the foot, or between the toes. Tinea pedis on the plantar, or bottom of the foot is called moccasin distribution. Tinea pedis with distribution between the toes is called interdigital distribution. For moccasin tinea pedis, many antifungal creams can be prescribed. For interdigital tinea pedis, clotrimazole 1% solution drops are prescribed, since there are to be no creams between the toes.
