Let’s get one thing straight. You don’t need to be an athlete to get athlete’s foot!
Athlete’s foot is the colloquial term for tinea pedis, a fungal infection of the superficial layer of the skin. It manifests as scaling, itchy, red, inflamed conditions between your toes and/or the soles of your feet. Fungal spores thrive in warm, moist, humid environments and are highly contagious, spreading easily amongst family members and areas of the body if not treated correctly.
