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 dermatophytoses. 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 10men(25%) only were afflicted while the 

women were free. It is believed that more continuance wearing of

shoes were a risk factor.
