Athletes' foot fungus may spread to your nails, they will become discolored and thick and/or even crumble ( see yellowed nail below) .........possibly requiring a surgeons' intervention.

Athlete's foot is a communicable disease caused by the parasitic fungus Trichphyton genus, predominantly Trichophyton rubrum or Trichophyton mentagrophyes. Athlete's foot is transmitted in moist environments where people are barefoot, showers, locker rooms pool decks etc. Athlete's foot can also be transmitted by sharing footwear with an infected person or, less commonly sharing towels with an infected person. The various parasitic fungi that cause athlete's foot can also cause skin infections on other areas of the body; such as the hands or subnail plates of the toe nail ( shown below).
