This is a fungal infection which causes increased itching, cracked, blistered or peeling areas of the skin. Occurs on moist water logged skin, usually in between the toes - but can also occur on the soles of the feet and heels.
Avoiding Athletes Foot is easy: Wash feet daily and pay particular attention to drying in between the toes. Try not to wear the same shoes every day, and wear 100% cotton socks, especially for sport so your feet can breathe. Avoid sharing towels/footwear, and wear flip flops in public changing rooms and around swimming pools.
