Athletes foot is a fungal infection caused by a group of fungi called dermatophytes that affects the skin on your feet.

The fungus on the feet thrives in warm and moist conditions and usually is found in feet that have become very sweaty whilst being confined in tight fitting shoes or trainers.

Athletes foot is a highly contagious infection and can easily spread in public changing rooms, showers and swimming pools.

The infection usually occurs between the toes but can also spread to other parts of the foot.
