Can you catch athletes feet on your hands?

Kevin how do you handle those who have atheletes foot/feet? 
I worry about contacting some of these foot problems if I know they have them.

Athletes foot is really mostly confined to the feet because of the warm, moist conditions. But it can spread to the hands and face if you sweat a lot and are in very moist conditions.

I have never had a problem with it because I am not very sweaty and I wash before and after seasons with a 20 second hand wash or longer. I also provide wet wipes as an alternative to foot washing if the conditions are not convenient.

Hope this helps.

How do you avoid contracting or spreading plantar warts? They aren't always easy to see or identify upon first inspection, and some people don't know they have them.

same thing- Wash your hands throughly. Although I am not sure plantar warts are able to spread to the hands.
