Athlete's Foot

Athlete's foot is a rash on the skin of your foot caused by a fungus. It can cause itching, peeling, and cracking on the bottoms of the feet and between the toes.

You can get it by walking barefoot on contaminated surfaces near swimming pools or in locker rooms. After you have had athlete's foot, you're more likely to get it again.
