Athlete’s Foot

Must Know About This

  • Confining footwear is probably the most important factor in contracting athlete’s foot.
  • Being barefoot allows the feet to be fully ventilated and remain dry and exposed to sunlight.
  • Walking without shoes develops much stronger skin and causes the fungus to be worn off and removed before it can affect the skin.

Good to Know About This

  • This is a common and contagious fungal infection that can affect different areas of the foot, such as the bottom of the foot or the skin between the toes.
  • In some cases this skin infection can spread to other parts of the body.
  • The fungus requires warmth and moisture to grow, so there is an increased risk in humid areas, such as communal showers, swimming pools and hot tubs.
