I'm pretty sure it is the same species of trichophyton fungus that causes both athletes foot and jock itch and similar superficial skin fungal infections like that. Candida yeast prefer moister mucus membranes like the throat, vagina, or diaper rash in babies.
[Jock Itch] is often caused by the same type of fungus that causes athlete's foot and, sometimes, ringworm of the scalp. In fact, the fungus that infects your groin area may be spread there from your own athlete's foot infection.
If you have fungal infection, such as athlete's foot, the same organism may cause a rash in your groin.
It isn't.The same fungus is happy to live elsewhere on the body if it gets a chance.It prefers damp conditions and feet are often a very suitable place for it.
