Causes of Athlete’s Foot

Athlete’s foot is primarily caused by the proliferation of dermatophyte fungi, including Trichophyton rubrum, Trichophyton interdigitale, and Epidermophyton floccosum. Certain predisposing factors such as occlusive footwear, heavy sweating, inadequate foot drying, and exposure to fungal spores in communal areas contribute to its occurrence.
