It can occur anywhere (athlete's foot or tinea pedis, beard or tinea barbae, scalp or tinea capitis, body or tinea corporis, nails or onychomycosis). Symptoms include peeling, redness, itching, burning, or sometimes blisers. The fungus can be spread at public pools, locker room showers, and daycares.
