Athelete's Foot

Athlete's foot is a fungal infection of the skin that causes scaling, flaking, and itch of affected areas

Athlete's foot may be contagious from person to person, but it is not always contagious. Some people may be more susceptible to the fungus that causes athlete's foot while others are more resistant.

The symptoms of athlete's foot typically include various degrees of itching and burning. The skin may frequently peel, and in particularly severe cases, there may be some cracking, pain, and bleeding as well. Some people have no symptoms at all and do not know they have an infection.

Athlete's foot can be prevented by good hygiene, and is treated by a number of pharmaceutical and other treatments.The fungi that cause athlete's foot can live on shower floors, wet towels, and footwear.Since fungi thrive in moist environments, it is very important to keep feet and footwear as dry as possible.
