Tinea can spread to other areas of the body by contact.
It can get deep into the body and become a systemic infection. Cases have been seen that are so bad it is difficult to walk.

In brief: Fungus Amongus

Foot fungus can be annoying and embarrassing at the very least.
It can itch profoundly and when you scratch...You cam spread it. It can be bad enough that the skin could open and become a portal of entry for even worse contaminants. See your podiatrist for treatment. Apma.Com acfas.Org.
