Athlete’s foot is a common skin fungus that affects the feet, particularly between the toes, and at times the toe nails. It is refer to as “ringworm of the feet”. Tinea pedis is a fungal infection that thrives warm, damp environments. Fungi live off dead skin cells on the calluses of the feet (especially in-between the toes).
Athlete’s foot fungus is highly contagious and is found most commonly in warm, damp places, like gymnasiums, locker rooms and indoor swimming pools.
The fungus responsible for Athlete’s foot grows on or inside the top layer of the skin. The fungi grow easily on the feet, especially in-between the toes.
Athlete’s foot is contagious when encountered with areas that are warm and damp, such as showers and locker rooms. Some people are more susceptible to Athlete’s foot than others.
Once someone has Athlete’s foot, he is more likely to get it again. The fungus spreads quicker when antibiotics, drugs or radiation destroys beneficial bacteria.
Symptoms include itching, burning sensation and unpleasant smell, inflammation, scaling and blistering on the foot and in-between the toes. Athlete’s foot can become infected if not treated.
