Understanding And Treating Athlete's Foot
Athlete's foot is classified as a contagious fungal infection that affects the skin of the feet. Even though it is common in athletes, the infection can affect anyone. While surprising to learn, many people will develop athlete's foot at some point in time. Recent reports have shown an estimated 3 to 15 percent of the population have athlete's foot. It may be common, but most people do not really understand the infection.
