Hi all,
I have had this problem for about 5 years. But I refuse to go to the Dr's because, well I HATE feet, and mine are not exception, and thruth be told, I am embarrassed to show anyone.
Although its not very bad. I have a part of my foot that is itchy....real itchy. Its my little toe and the two toes next to that. It's itchy on the surfce, and sometimes in between my toes. I know I shouldn't, but i do itch them...I get some relief, but I dont know when to stop, and more often than not I end up breaking the skin. Sometimes the skin between , my toes splits and its really painful. It's only on my right foot. I've never had this problem on my left foot. I've also noticed that the itch is worse when I wear my "cheaper" synthetic shoes. This might lead one to believe that I may have an allergy to synthetics in my shoes, but wouldn't both of my feelt become itchy?
I have tried Tinea Cream and Powder, but it doesnt seem to help.
I dont know if this beholds any relevance, but I am also prone to excema.
Any advice would be great!!
Thanx heaps :)
