‘Tinea pedis’, the medical term for the fungal affliction called athlete’s foot. This is a fairly widespread infection, affecting many people, and not just athletes, as the terminology implies.
Funguses causing athlete’s foot mostly invade the feet, particularly the areas in between the toes and the base of the foot. Warmth and moistness of these areas serve as ideal breeding conditions. Sometimes, even the toenails or fingernails might be affected.
Symptoms of athlete’s foot:
An individual is especially vulnerable to contracting athlete’s foot if he or she remains barefoot in public areas, wears tight-fitting shoes for long periods, and has a tendency to perspire profusely.
