Athletes feet

Athlete’s foot is a fungal infection of the skin; often occurring, but not limited to, between the toes. This can be itchy and appear red, swollen, and dry; but may also appear moist (soggy). The fungus can spread to other areas of your body, with common locations including the nails, hands, and groin. The fungus can be picked up in several ways. Since the foot fungus lives on surfaces like floors and towels, and thrives in wet or damp environments, it is typically contracted by exposing your feet to public floors, like swimming pool decks, locker room floors or public showers. The fungus can also be contracted by wearing damp socks or wet shoes. Wearing tight shoes can also constrict your feet, not allow sweat to escape, and eventually lead to contracting athlete’s foot.
