Tinea pedis rash: Tinea pedis, or athlete's foot, is caused by a fungus (often by t. Rubrum fungus) that can be on locker room floors or other people's footwear. If the fungus is able to take hold on the skin cells and start growing, one will get the athlete's foot rash. Tinea pedis should be treated to relieve symptoms and also to prevent it from spreading to the toenails.
