Athletes Foot / Tinea Pedis

Athlete’s foot is a fungal infection of the skin that causes flaking, scaling and itching. Usually, it affects the soles of the feet, but it can spread to other areas including the groin. It spreads on moist and warm surfaces, like bathroom floors, and also through infected clothes or footwear and through swimming pools.
