Suggest treatment for fungal infection on foot
User rating for this question
Ever since I went out on our deck in socks and got them wet from the dampness in our outdoor carpet I have had problems with scaley places that itch on the side, top, and bottom of my foot. It seemed to be going away, but now I have a placeon the palm of my hand. Could it be a fungus? If so, what should I do? I am between doctors right now and cannot show anyone.
