While many people have heard of athlete’s foot, jock itch, or ringworm, not everyone may be familiar with tinea. Essentially, it’s all one and the same, said Dr. John Ciccone, a podiatrist at Pacific Beach Podiatry. The condition is contagious, appears in areas of the body such as the feet because they may often be wet or damp and, he said, “It won’t go away on its own.”

Ciccone said that an estimated 15 to 20 percent of the population will develop tinea at some point. The most common areas for it to develop are the bottom of the feet because that’s where sweat glands are located. He said the feet sweat a quart of water per day, and those who are busy and on their feet all day at work — bartenders, for instance — may be prone to tinea as they stand for long hours in damp footwear.
