A fungus is a living organism that can be transmitted from one person to another. It can be transmitted in places like shower stalls, locker rooms, dirty floors and old shoes or by wearing someone else’s shoes that has the infection. The fungus also can be spread from one of your toenails to your another one of your toenails.
