The Germiest Places in Your Gym
Don't Go Home Sick
The Locker Room
Padding along barefoot in the locker room or yoga studio makes you susceptible to athlete’s foot. The infection develops when a fungus known as trichophyton rubrum sneaks into the moist crevices between the toes and causes feet to crack or develop itchy red scales.
Protect yourself: Always wear shoes in the gym and locker room, and keep toes clean and dry.
