Athlete's foot is a fungal infection of the skin. Toe web
(interdigital) type athlete's foot often begins with skin that seems moist and
pale white. Itching, burning, and a slight odor are often noticeable. As the
infection progresses, the skin between the toes becomes scaly, peels, and
Toe web infection, the most common type of athlete's foot, usually
occurs between the fourth and fifth toes.
