Athlete’s foot (tinea pedis) is a fungal infection that usually begins between the toes. It occurs most commonly in people whose feet have become very sweaty while wearing tight-fitting shoes. Athlete’s foot is caused by the same type of fungus that causes ringworms. Damp socks and shoes, and warm humid conditions favor the organism’s growth. Athlete’s foot is contagious and can be spread by contact with an infected person from contact with contaminated surfaces, such as towels, floors, and shoes.
