Could my husband have given me his athletes foot by rubbing his feet on me during the night in bed?
Yes: Athletes foot, or a fungal infection can be caught by direct contact. Both you and your husband need to be treated to eradicate the fungus, as well as the tiles in the bathroom to prevent reinfection. Lamisil (terbinafine) is an o/c antifungal cream.

If the problem persists you should see your doctor for an evaluation and treatment. I hope you are better soon. ...Read more
