The most common presentation of tinea pedis (athlete's foot) is that involving the interdigital spaces. Tinea pedis interdigitalis may present as asymptomatic dermatophytosis simplex or dermatophytosis complex, which is symptomatic, with secondary bacterial infection. In the dermatophytosis complex presentation there may be inflammation, maceration and odor, with bacterial involvement. Ciclopirox gel offers advantages in the treatment of tinea pedis, especially in the dermatophytosis complex… 
Foot bacterial intertrigo mimicking interdigital tinea pedis.
TLDR
Foot bacterial intertrigo is not a rare condition and can easily be confused with interdigital tinea or eczematous dermatitis, which should be instructed about proper foot hygiene, which is important to prevent recurrent infections.
Dermatophytes and bacterial superinfectives in tinea pedis patients at Haji Adam Malik Central Hospital, Medan-Indonesia
TLDR
The number of subjects who suffer from tinea pedis is not much difference between men (48.9%) and women (51.1%) and the highest prevalence was in the age group 37-46 years (28,9%), mostly graduated from elementary school and mostly housekeepers and almost exclusively involved bacterial superinfection.
Interdigital Tinea: The Forerunner of Infectious Eczematoid Dermatitis
TLDR
A 28 year-old-male who presented with an acute onset tender, pruritic, weeping rash after wearing boots for two straight days, and who was subsequently diagnosed and treated for IED is described.
Therapeutic effectiveness of Ageratina pichinchensis on the treatment of chronic interdigital tinea pedis: a randomized, double-blind clinical trial.
TLDR
Both treatments were effective for the treatment of interdigital-type tinea pedis, while better results were observed on patients that received the higher concentration of the extract.
Onychomycosis and Tinea Pedis in the Feet of Patients With Diabetes.
TLDR
The results show that clinical diagnosis has low accuracy in people with diabetes mellitus, and that diagnosis should not be based on clinical toenail characteristics alone.
Ciclopirox gel: an update
TLDR
The results confirm the broad-spectrum activity of ciclopirox in contrast to some other antifungal agents and suggest that ciclapirox would be effective not only for the treatment of tinea infections that are caused predominantly by T. rubrum and T. mentagrophytes, but also superficial fungal infections caused by Candida and Malassezia species.

TLDR

Ciclopirox: a broad‐spectrum antifungal with antibacterial and anti‐inflammatory properties
TLDR

Efficacy of ciclopiroxolamine 1% cream in onychomycosis and tinea pedis
TLDR
The results show onychomycosis to be highly resistent to antifungal therapy, perhaps even more as compared to tinea pedis in temperate climates, and the good tolerability favours topical ciclopiroxolamine for this recalcitrant disease.

TLDR
Certain types of tinea may be treated with "pulse" regimens; these innovative therapies lower treatment costs and improve patient compliance.
