Athlete’s foot, or tinea pedis, is most commonly found in the soles of the feet, between the toes, and might even make its way to the toenails. People who touch an infected area could also spread the infection to the palms of the hands, the groin, or underneath the arms.
Contrary to what the name suggests, athlete’s foot does not only affect athletes, but it is most often seen in people with sweaty or damp feet. If you notice excessive itching, burning, redness, or even stinging on the feet, you might be suffering from athlete’s foot.

Your dermatologist can help you target cosmetic issues that make you feel self-conscious. If your eyelashes are shorter and thinner than you would prefer, Latisse can help without the need for invasive surgery. Use this guide to figure out the best way to apply the solution to get the results you want:
Make Sure Your Face is Completely Clean
Latisse is a product that should be applied nightly. Before you put the product on your eyelashes, though, it is important to wash your face thoroughly to get rid of all dirt and makeup from the course of the day. Take out your contact lashes and make sure that the area around your eyes is very clean before moving on to the next step.
Put Latisse on the Applicator
To apply Latisse, take out one applicator at a time. You only need to add one drop of Latisse close to the tip of the applicator. Carefully drag the applicator along the upper eyelashes where they meet the skin. You do not use the applicator along the bottom lashes or you might see hair growth outside of the intended area.
Clean the Area Near the Lashes
After you have carefully applied the product, use a tissue to blot the area around the eye to get rid of any excess solution. Throw the applicator away after you use it once. You should use a new applicator to apply the Latisse to the other eye and repeat the blotting process when you are finished.
Come to Altman Dermatology today to start getting Latisse treatments that can help you get the long, thick eyelashes you have always wanted. We also specialize in acne treatment and have a skin care center to help target your issues and find a real solution.

The way that you care for your skin greatly affects its overall appearance. If you want to get the best results when you visit the dermatologist, it is important to properly take care of your skin at home. Keep reading to learn about some of the most common care mistakes so you can avoid them:
Leaving on Makeup While You Sleep
Extreme exhaustion can hit you quickly, and when it does, it is hard to make yourself do much of anything but collapse into your bed. If you are still wearing your makeup from the day, however, it is important to make an effort to clean it off. Sleeping with a face full of cosmetics might keep dirt and oil in your skin, which will eventually clog your pores and lead to breakouts. If you sleep in makeup too often, it can even negatively affect your skin’s ability to regenerate.
Using the Wrong Products
Although it is important to clean your face, you should also be careful not to use products that are too harsh. Products that are too strong can dry out your skin, which might cause the skin to overproduce oil to compensate for this lack of moisture. You should also be careful about washing your face with very hot water.
Skimping on the Moisturizer
Since it is so easy to dry out the skin, it is really important to maintain a moisturizing routine to keep the skin hydrated. Moisturizing can prevent your skin from drying out and getting flaky. It can also help you avoid issues like eczema and dermatitis.
The expert skin team at Altman Dermatology can help you find the best care routine for your skin. Our skin care center helps offers acne treatment and regular care tips that make it easy to put your best face forward. To learn more about our procedures and products, call (847) 725-0817.
