Athlete's foot is a fungal (fungal) infection that usually affects the skin between the toes. The name originates from the fact that athletes are frequently affected by it.
Since shoes create an ideal environment for the proliferation of fungi, that is to say humid, warm and dark, the feet are the part of the body most affected by this type of infection. The infection can spread to the armpits, groin or palms of the hands when you touch your infected foot and then another part of your body without washing your hands first, but this rarely happens.
Most people get athlete's foot from walking barefoot on a wet floor in a public place (for example, in the locker room of a sports center). However, you don't have to be athletic or go to gyms to catch it.
