Athlete's foot is an infection of the feet caused by fungus. The medical term is tinea pedis. It is contagious, and can be passed through direct contact, or contact with items such as shoes, stockings, and shower or pool surfaces. Anyone can contact this infection but there are available treatments. Athlete's foot can be prevented by good hygiene, and is treated by a number of pharmaceutical and other treatments.

The most common symptom of an athlete's foot is cracked, flaking, peeling skin between the toes. The affected area is usually red and itchy. You may feel burning or stinging, and there may be blisters, oozing, or crusting. In addition to the toes, the symptoms can also occur on the heels, palms, and between the fingers.

The fungi that cause athlete's foot thrives in a warm and moist areas. Your risk of getting this contagious infection is greater if you sweat a lot and if you keep your feet wet for prolonged periods of time. You are also in a great risk if you always wear closed shoes, especially if they are plastic-lined.
