    Athlete's foot is a skin infection caused by a tiny fungus. It's very easy to catch. You can pick it up if you walk barefoot in warm, damp places, such as in the changing rooms and showers at gyms. Or you can catch it if you touch the skin of someone who already has it.Your feet are the perfect place for this infection to grow, especially between your toes. Your feet are warm, often slightly damp, and full of keratin. Fungi feed on keratin, which is a protein found in nails, skin, and hair. Athlete's foot is a common infection caused by a fungus. It most often affects the space between the toes. Symptoms include itching, burning, and cracked, scaly skin between your toes. You can get athlete's foot from damp surfaces, such as showers, swimming pools, and locker room floors.
