Tinea Pedis

Tinea pedis, also known as athlete's foot, is a fungal infection of the feet, that usually begins between the toes. It commonly occurs in people whose feet have become very sweaty while confined within tightfitting shoes.

Avoid staying in humid and warm environments as it will only aggravate the growth of the infection. Please practice social distancing and cover the infected area as tinea pedis is highly contagious.
