I have had a problem with my toes for sometime now. It gets really itchy between the toes to the point that I scratch them until they bleed. I visited a doctor and he gave me a powder to apply and while this illeviates the problem for a while it doesnt totally irradicate it
The other day I was scratching the one toe and it became quite raw. Since then the sore that has developed will not heal. This has been for about a month now.
My problem is during the day at work I wear socks and closed shoes and thus can't leave my foot open to "breathe". While at home I walk around bare foot.
The cycle which has been happening for the past few weeks is that a scab will begin to form but then just wash away after I bath/shower. I have tried putting a plaster on it but this seems to make it worse. During the day it burns and makes walking difficult. It is also affecting my sporting life as I play soccer once a week and kicking the ball sends me through the roof as it is very sensitive to any knock
Please advise how I am can heal the sore on my toe. Should I not bath for a couple days (bit gross) ? leave the plaster on or off?
I suppose I should go see the padaestrist again not just for the sore but for the cause of the itchy toes
All comments welcome. Thanks
