Athlete's Foot


Was the cause of your athlete's foot a condition (psoriasis, fungal infection, contact allergens) or poorly fitting shoes, sharing socks and shoes, or using public shower facilities? Submit Your Comment

I developed athlete’s foot after being away from home for 4 days and developing blisters on my feet from wearing the same shoes after standing a long time (feet swelling). It is summer and I don’t know if I picked it up from a hotel bathroom or if I got it from my husband as his gets intermittent athlete’s foot. I think having the blisters made it easier for me to pick it up. It is awful!
