Lindsay Lohan’s Secret ShameAccording to the tabloid The National Inquirer, Lindsay Lohan has recently developed an athlete’s foot infection. The Inquirer’s sources claim that the fungus is making her feet smell bad, and that foot odor is actually a problem Lohan has apparently been dealing with for years.

“Lilo’s horrified by her athlete’s foot,” states a “friend” of the actress. “She has no idea where she caught it because she’s always so careful in communal bathrooms and spas. But she’s suffered smelly feet ever since she was a teenager, and it’s been a hugely embarrassing cross to bear.” Meanwhile, Lohan has been clean from drugs since being checked out of addiction rehab, and is the subject of an 8-part documentary currently airing on Oprah Winfrey’s TV network.

Athlete’s foot can make even the most attractive people feel less than beautiful. If you are dealing with athlete’s foot, see podiatrist Dr. Mayer Salama of Salama Foot Care. Dr. Salama can treat your foot and ankle needs.
