What, Why & How

Athlete’s foot is not really known with this name but we are sure the problem must be known with this name. As we know many patients dealing with this issue. Tinea pedis is the medical name for the fungal infection that starts growing between the toes of the same foot.
As suggested by the name, the problem does not only limit athletes but it can happen with anyone who has a habit of wearing shoes. The common reason for an athlete’s foot is the warmness due to covered feet. The feet usually get moist and stay placed in the damp, dark area which gives rise to fungal infection. Infection is present on the heel, sole, back or top of the foot, and toe webs. Infections like jock and itch are close to the athlete’s foot.
