Athlete's Foot

Athlete's foot is a common skin inflammation of the webs of the toes and soles of the feet. When caused by a fungus, athlete's foot may spread to the palms, groin, and body.

Fungal infections of the feet are contagious and can be spread person to person or by walking on contaminated objects and floors. Athlete's foot may cause foot itching, burning, pain, and scaling.
