Athletes Foot CAUSED BY INFECTION
Athlete’s foot is caused by a fungal infection of one or both feet.
Everyone has bacteria and fungi on their skin. Most of the time they are harmless and do not cause problems.
However, at certain times – for example in moist, warm conditions – the fungi can grow and multiply, causing your skin to become infected.
Fungi are organisms that are similar to plants. They feed off broken-down tissue, including human tissue. Unlike plants, they cannot produce food using energy from sunlight (photosynthesis).
Athlete’s foot is caused by a group of fungi called dermatophytes. Dermatophytes are parasitic, which means they feed off other organisms to survive. Your feet provide a warm, dark and humid environment, ideal conditions for dermatophytes to grow.
Dermatophytes can cause fungal infections to develop in areas such as the outer layers of the skin, nails, scalp and hair.
Many other types of fungi can cause various infections. However, the main groups that cause fungal infections such as athlete’s foot are:
