Apart from these areas, the fungus might develop at the bottom of the foot, under nails, on hands, and nearby skin areas.

Tinea pedis is a member of the group of diseases known as tinea, and is mainly caused by a number of different fungi.  Trichophyton, Epidermophyton, and Microsporum, are some of the major fungi types that may cause the tinea pedis ailment.

Common places where the fungi can survive are around swimming pools and in locker rooms; they may also be spread from other animals. Usually diagnosis is made on the basis of signs and symptoms; however, it can be confirmed either by studying cultures or by observing hyphae using a microscope.

Some methods of prevention include avoiding walking barefoot in public showers, keeping toenails short, wearing clean shoes, and changing socks daily. When infected, the feet should be kept dry and clean, and wearing sandals or floaters may help. Treatment can either be carried out with antifungal medication applied to the skin such as clotrimazole. For persistent infections, medication such as terbinafine need to be administered through the oral cavity. The use of these medicines is typically recommended for four weeks.
