START SAVING

Anyone can get infected with athlete’s foot, jock itch, and ringworm because they are very contagious. Many people who get them play sports, but you can get infected even if you aren’t an athlete.

These infections are caused by a certain type of fungus that grows best in warm and moist places, like in pools, shower areas, the inside of shoes, and damp clothing. Walking barefoot in public places with damp surfaces, wearing tight clothing, and sharing shoes and clothing are several ways you can get fungal infections.

Athlete’s foot (interdigital tinea pedis) occurs between the toes and is the most common fungal infection. Jock itch (tinea cruris) affects the groin, inner thighs, and buttocks and is common in people with tight underwear or who sweat heavily. Ringworm (tinea corporis) usually impacts the chest, arms, or legs.

Consult your doctor about proper treatment and care. Ask how LUZU (luliconazole) Cream, 1% can help clear athlete's foot between the toes, jock itch, and ringworm.
