Athlete's Foot is probably the best known infection you can pick up at the gym. It’s an itchy rash that’s usually red, inflamed, and scaly. It’s highly contagious and can be caught anytime you’re barefoot, in open toed shoes, or wearing wet socks.
To avoid getting Athlete's Foot, avoid going barefoot in common areas and keep your feet dry. The fungus that causes athletes foot thrives in warm, wet environments, so washing and drying your feet regularly, changing your socks after exercise, wearing shoes in all common areas in the gym, allowing your training shoes time to dry before reuse, regularly cleaning your gym bag, and wearing flip-flops in the shower, will help prevent this common infection.
