The National Inquirerstates that Lindsay Lohan has athlete’s foot. According to the Inquirer’s sources, the fungal condition is behind Lohan’s struggle with bad smelling feet that has affected her for quite some time.
“Lilo’s horrified by her athlete’s foot,” one of the actress’ friends has stated. “She has no idea where she caught it because she’s always so careful in communal bathrooms and spas. But she’s suffered smelly feet ever since she was a teenager, and it’s been a hugely embarrassing cross to bear.” Lohan will be the subject of an Oprah Winfrey network 8-part documentary on drug use and rehabilitation.

What is Athlete’s Foot?
If you suffer from itching, burning, dry, and flaking feet, this may be a sign of athlete's foot. Athlete's foot, also known as tinea pedis, can be extremely contagious, and it often infects shower floors, gyms, socks and shoes, and anywhere else feet may come in contact with. It is commonly found in public changing areas and bathrooms, dormitory style living quarters, around locker rooms and public swimming pools. This condition can also be prevalent in "commons" areas in prisons and residential care facilities.
