Athletes foot is a common fungal skin infection commonly found between the toes and on the sole of the foot. Athletes foot can cause the skin to flake and peel. As the skin is itchy you are more likely to scratch which can cause the skin to split. In severe cases a secondary infection dan occur where the skin has split.
Fungal infections thrive in dark, warm and moist environments - inside the shoe is the perfect environment for an infection to develop.
Athletes foot can spread to the surrounding areas and the nails if left untreated. In severe cases, a fungal nail infection can also develop.
