How did I get athlete's foot?
- Athlete's foot is most commonly contracted by coming into contact with an infected person or an object that has a fungus on it
- Walking barefoot in locker rooms, public pools, or shower areas may increase the risk of contracting athlete's foot
- People are most susceptible to athlete's foot when their feet are sweating or lack proper ventilation
- Shoes create the ideal environment for fungus growth, as they provide a warm, moist area
