In brief: Warm moist areas

A fungal skin infection is more likely to occur on warm, moist parts of the body such as the armpits, the groin, and in between the toes.
Candidal yeast infections can occur on the skin, or in the mouth or vagina. Fungi can be found on moist areas like locker room floors, so athlete's foot infections can start from contact with fungi on floors or on other people's footwear.
