Athletes foot is a fungal infection.

With athletes foot you will feel sore in between the toes, sometimes itching.  The skin will peel and the skin can crack in between the toes.

An antifungal cream specially for athletes foot will help and also medicated talcum powder for athletes foot.

Make sure your toes are dry after a bath or shower.  Wear cotton socks, don't wear other people's footwear.

Althletes foot fungus likes warm, dark and humid conditions.

The medical name for athlete’s foot is tinea pedis.

Athlete’s foot is caused by a fungal infection. Harmless bacteria and fungi live naturally on your skin. If these organisms multiply, your skin can become infected.

A group of fungi called dermatophytes is responsible for athlete’s foot. These fungi feed off other organisms to survive. Your feet provide a warm, dark and humid environment. These are ideal conditions for dermatophytes to grow.

Athlete's foot spreads easily. It can be passed from person to person through contaminated towels, clothing or surfaces.

The fungi multiply in warm and humid places such as showers, swimming pools and changing rooms.
