Athlete’s foot is a common skin disorder. It’s caused by a fungal infection that occurs between the toes and on the sole of the foot. The skin becomes itchy and cracked, with flaking pieces of dead white skin. In severe cases, blisters develop and the toe nails become thickened and discolored. It is highly contagious and is spread either by direct contact or via infected material. Take particular care to use your own towel and not share bath mats.
