In humans, skin mycoses include the disease ringworm, so named because it appears as circular red areas on the skin.   Some mycoses are opportunistic, occurring only when a change in the body’s microorganisms, chemical environment, or immune system allows and influences ringworm to grow unchecked. These factors + the ease of spread of ringworm are difficult/impossible to control, making it hard to eliminate all risks. Ringworm growth can on the feet, causing the intense itching and blisters known as athlete’s foot. That is why many people don't go barefoot in public showers because it can be passed on through contaminated water. Also direct human-to-human contact are all factors that affect the spread of ringworm
