Caption: Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Athlete's foot fungus (Epidermophyton floccosum). Athlete's foot, also called tinea pedis, is a contagious fungal infection that affects the skin on the feet. It can also spread to the toenails and sometimes the hands. Epidermophyton floccosum is an anthropophilic dermatophyte that causes athlete's foot. This fungus can cause tinea pedis, tinea cruris, tinea corporis, and onychomycosis. Hosts of the fungus are humans, wild animals, and domestic animals. The infection spreads by contact, especially in gyms and showers. The infection can be stopped by bathing with soap and water and applying an appropriate fungicide. Magnification: x245 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres.
