Athlete's foot is a rash caused by a fungus that usually appears between the toes.
The affected skin may be itchy, red, scaly, dry, cracked or blistered. It's not usually serious, but should be treated to stop it spreading to other parts of the body or other people.
The medical name for athlete's foot is tinea pedis.
