I felt a “pop” and twinge of pain not unlike anything I had experienced before. I thought I had a slight sprain, perhaps.

Athlete’s Foot is a fungus caused rash on the skin of the foot and ankle and grows on the top layer of the skin. Fungus grows in warm, wet places such as the areas between your toes. This fungus spreads easily and can be obtained by walking barefoot on contaminated areas or by touching the toes or feet of another person who has it. The fungus then grows in your shoes, especially if your shoes are air tight and air cannot move around your feet.
