Symptoms of Athlete’s Foot

This time of year, as students head back to dorms and players head back to the locker room, we see a huge increase in the number of cases of athlete’s foot. Athlete’s foot is a common disorder caused by fungus. It is a scaly rash that usually starts between the toes and up onto the foot. It is extremely contagious and spreads quickly from person to person. When left untreated, a fungal infection can spread to the toenails and can even cause a bacterial infection that is much more difficult to treat.
