The article provides information on various types of foot diseases. Mosaic warts are caused by virus and spread by contact of bare feet. Tinea pedis is due to dermatophyte fungal infection which causes moist, peeling areas between the toes or pustules of the instep or sides of the feet. Keratoderma causes patients to suffer from gross thickening of the skin of the soles of the feet. Details related to the treatment of these diseases are also discussed.
