What is Athlete's Foot and How is it Treated?

"What is athlete’s foot and how is it treated? Athlete’s foot is a common skin infection. It is caused by a fungus and typically affects the bottom of the foot and in between the toes. It can be contagious and is often spread in warm, wet environments such as locker rooms and inside shoes. Athlete’s foot is often treated with a topical anti-fungal cream or gel. Sometimes, an oral medication is prescribed."
