Tinea Pedis Definition and Symptoms

Tinea pedis is the medical term for athletes foot, which is an infection of the feet that is caused by a fungus. The infection duration varies widely and can last a few days up to months. Damp socks, warm shoes, and humid conditions allow the fungus to thrive. Symptoms include red and itchy skin, blisters that ooze, stinging pain, and the nails becoming thick and discolored.
