It can be caused by foods that were canned or preserved at home. Maybe you’ve had fruits or vegetables that someone picked from the garden in the summer and jarred so they could be eaten during the winter months.

The fungus that causes Athlete’s foot can be found where athletes often are. The fungus grows on the warm, damp surfaces around pools, public showers, and locker rooms. People walk barefoot on these surfaces and fungus ends up on their feet. Or they might use a damp towel that has the athlete’s foot fungus on it. But just having the fungus on your feet isn’t enough to cause the infection. The infection
happens if conditions are right for the fungus to grow. The fungus likes it wet, so:
- Dry your feet properly after swimming, showering, or bathing.
- Do not wear tight shoes when your feet are sweaty
- Do not wear the same pair of shoes or socks day after day.

might have a rash that itches and burns. Other signs include:
- bumps on the feet cracked, blistered, or peeling areas, often between the toes
- redness and scaling on the soles of the feet
- skin between the toes may look cheesy and have an unpleasant odor
- a rash that spreads to the instep (inside part of the foot)
- raw skin from scratching
