10. Picture of Athlete's Foot 2
Athlete's foot is a fungal infection on the soles of the feet and in between the toes. It causes itching and cracking, red, flaky skin. Breaks in the skin can allow bacteria into the area and lead to an infection. Antifungal oral medications and topical creams may be used to treat athlete's foot. Most people acquire athlete's foot from walking barefoot in high-humidity areas like locker rooms, gym bathrooms, and swimming pool areas.
