Athlete's foot, or tinea pedis, is a common fungal infection. Athlete's foot is divided into 3 categories:
  • Chronic interdigital athlete’s foot
  • Chronic scaly athlete’s foot (moccasin type)
  • Acute vesicular athlete’s foot

This is an example of chronic interdigital athlete's foot, which is the most common type.
