It often happens in people whose feet have become extremely sweaty while constrained within tight-fitting shoes. Athlete’s foot (tinea pedis) is a fungal infection that typically begins between the toes.

Athlete’s foot is contagious and can be spread through contaminated floors, towels, or clothing. Signs and symptoms of athlete’s foot include a scaly rash that typically causes itching, stinging, and burning.

Similar to the fungus that causes jock itch and ringworm, athlete’s foot is brought on by damp socks and shoes, warm, moist environments, and other factors.

It is possible to contract athlete’s foot from contaminated surfaces, including towels, floors, and shoes, or from direct contact with an infected person.

A red, scaly rash that usually starts between the toes is an athlete’s foot symptom. The rash itches a lot, and the itchiest time is usually right after you take off your shoes and socks.

Blisters or ulcers can be present in some forms of athlete’s foot, while the moccasin variety of the condition causes chronic dryness and scaling on the soles that extends up the side of the foot and can be mistaken for eczema or even dry skin.

If you pick or scratch at the infected areas of your feet, the infection may spread to your hand and may affect one or both of your feet.

Your likelihood of developing athlete’s foot is increased if you:

· Are a man

Usually don’t wear loose-fitting shoes or wet socks

Use a fungal infection to spread mats, rugs, bed linens, clothing, or shoes.

Avoid wearing shoes in public places where the disease might proliferate, including showers, saunas, swimming pools, and public baths.

Athlete’s foot complications include the following:

Your hand.Those who pick or scratch at the infected areas of their feet run the risk of getting the same infection in one of their hands.

Your nails.Your toenails, which are typically more difficult to treat, can also become infected by the fungi that cause athlete’s foot.

Your groin.The same fungus that causes athlete’s foot frequently causes jock itch, and because the fungus can move from your feet to your groin on your hands or a towel, jock itch frequently spreads from your feet to your groin.
