Causes of Athlete’s Foot

Feet release approximately one half pint of moisture per day, and that rate actually increases with warm weather. This softens the skin and allows bacteria & fungi to penetrate and infect your skin. This happens by the “digestion” of your skin to allow the organisms to feed on the dead skin & nail. This usually also produces foot odor.

Fungus infections of the foot and nail spread in warm, dark and moist areas. “Athlete’s foot” makes skin itchy and scaly, nails thick and white.
