Caption: Athlete's foot. Close-up of athlete's foot affecting the skin between a 14 year old boy's toes. This condition, also called tinea pedis, is the most common form of ringworm, a fungal infection on the surface of the skin. It causes cracked, inflamed skin, as seen here. It is caused by various species of fungi including Microsporum, Trichophyton and Epidermophyton. It is a highly contagious skin condition, spread by direct contact or via infected material. Athlete's foot is treated with antifungal creams or dusting powders. Secondary infections by bacteria in the exposed skin are treated with antibiotics.
