Athlete’s foot is a contagious skin condition also known as ‘tinea pedis’. It is mainly a fungal infection and can easily spread via contaminated towels, clothing or floors. It is easily transmissible in common places such as swimming pools or the common locker rooms where a person walks barefoot. Athlete’s foot commonly occurs in persons who wear tight fitting shoes and have sweaty feet. The main sign and symptom of athlete’s foot are rashes between the toes with itching, scaling, flaking and blister formation. The rashes may extend to the soles and sides of the feet. The person experiences intense itching as soon as he removes the shoes and socks. Athlete’s foot may spread further to the other foot or even the hands if a person continuously keeps scratching the infected area.
