This disease can be picked up in almost any public place: swimming pool, sauna, shower, as well as when wearing someone else's shoes, using someone else's towels or non-sterilized pedicure accessories. The fungus causes burning of the feet, itching, increased sweating and the appearance of an unpleasant odor in the area of the feet or fingers.

Shoes made from non-breathable materialsprevents air circulation and causes unpleasant odors. The same thing happens when you wear shoes that are out of season. In the closed shoes in the summer legs will be very hot, and the air in such shoes simply does not flow. So it turns out that sweat accumulated in large quantities begins to acquire an unpleasant odor.
