Is it contagious?
Expert:  Dr.tiwari replied 4 years ago.
Tinea infections are contagious & spread by use of foot wears of other persons while others are not.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Could it be anything else as I shower everyday. I do have cherry angiomas but it is not those they are on my body. The folliculitis on feet? I work in a salon and am a mobile nail technician and need to know if it is contagious.
Expert:  Dr.tiwari replied 4 years ago.
It may also be an allergy induced from contact with some dye.,by looking at your profession probability of this is more.You may consult to your dermatologist to check for allergen.Generally khaki dyes in cloths or rubber material does lead to such lesions.
