What Is Athlete’s Foot?

Apr 17, 2014

Athlete’s foot, or tinea pedis, is most commonly found in the soles of the feet, between the toes, and might even make its way to the toenails. People who touch an infected area could also spread the infection to the palms of the hands, the groin, or underneath the arms.

Contrary to what the name suggests, athlete’s foot does not only affect athletes, but it is most often seen in people with sweaty or damp feet. If you notice excessive itching, burning, redness, or even stinging on the feet, you might be suffering from athlete’s foot.
