What Causes Athlete’s Foot?

The dermatophyte fungi that cause athlete’s foot thrive on floors, in socks, clothing and towels which are damp. Athlete’s foot is contagious and can be passed from person to person.

Causes of athlete’s foot – who is most at risk?

It occurs more often in people who lead an active, sporty life and are prone to sweating, those who use communal showers and swimming pools and wear enclosed, unventilated shoes which don’t allow the feet to breathe. Poor hygiene – not washing and drying feet thoroughly, particularly between the toes – may also increase the chance of getting athlete’s foot.
