Athlete’s Foot is a fungal infection most commonly found between the toes in adults which can appear with inflammation, split, peeling skin, and at its most severe, with painful bleeding and blistering. Athlete’s Foot thrives in warm, moist, dark conditions such as in socks and shoes. The condition is extremely infectious so anyone can pick it up, especially people sharing changing areas and showers. 70% of people don’t treat the condition properly so it persists longer than necessary.
