“…Another factor is the use of occlusive footwear which causes humidity leading to maceration which promotes the emergence of tinea pedis and toenail onychomycosis. Indeed, tinea pedis is also called a Bpedal fungus reservoir^, spreading to other parts of the body and causing tinea manuum, inguinalis and unguium [28].…”

“…Although TP and OM are often found simultaneously, the aetiological interrelationship is not well defined. An ongoing cycle of reinfection from skin to nail with one site serving as reservoir is widely postulated 18 . This concept is supported by the frequent coexistence of TP and OM, frequent reappearance of either condition after apparently adequate therapy, and the isolation of the same species of dermatophyte from both sites in the vast majority of cases.…”

“…There is also evidence for coexistence of toenail onychomycosis with other dermatomycoses, especially tinea pedis [15]. Some authors state that tinea pedis almost always precedes onychomycosis and consider the foot as a fungus reservoir [16].…”
