Athlete’s foot doesn’t just happen to athletes. When feet come into contact with fungus, the skin of the foot may become infected. Dark, moist areas are prime real estate for fungi to grow; repeatedly wearing wet shoes or socks can put you at risk. If someone else with athlete’s foot walks barefoot in a locker room, the infection can also spread. Make sure to wash your feet often to prevent the condition and keep your shoes and socks clean.
