Athlete’s foot is a skin infection caused by a fungus, usually occurring between the toes or on the soles of the feet. The fungus most commonly attacks the feet because shoes create a warm, dark, and humid environment, which encourages fungus growth. The warmth and dampness include areas around swimming pools, showers, and locker rooms are also breeding grounds for fungi. Not all foot rashes are athlete’s foot. The doctor will determine if the fungus is the cause of the problem, and develop a specific treatment plan to resolve it.
