Introduction[Edit]

Athletes foot is a condition that causes scaling, flaking, and itching of the affected part of the skin. Other symptoms include blisters, cracked skin that leads to pain, swelling, and inflammation. This infection is contagious since it can spread to other areas of the body, such as the groin, and usually is called by a different name once it spreads.

Tinea pedis most often manifests on the foot, with the space between the fourth and fifth toes most commonly affected.

Athletes foot can usually be diagnosed by a doctor just by its appearance, but all other possible causes, such as eczema or psoriasis must be ruled out first.
