Athlete’s foot is a broad term for a type of foot fungus. Anyone — even non-athletes — can catch it from the environment, but the fungus seems to be more prevalent among long distance runners in particular. “My daughter is a keen runner and she regularly suffers from athlete’s foot. What can she do to prevent it?” wonders a parent from Glasgow, Scotland, writing in to the Evening Times. Fortunately, the makers of SteriShoe, a UV shoe sanitizer, have the answers.
