A person is more prone to experience recurring rounds of athlete’s foot if he/she is a runner or anyone who experiences excessive sweating. Fungi usually develop in moist environments. Wearing sweaty or wet clothes imposing a greater risk for skin infections. An open injury or cut in the skin may allow bacteria to get into the deeper layers of the skin.
