is it between your toes? is it itchy and macerated? if yes it could be fungal infection or soft corn. Apply Clotrimazole cream twice daily if its itchy.

Use Antifungal dusting powder like Abzorb beteen the toes to keep the area dry.
Wear shoes less often.

if its soft corn Use Salactin paint on it daily once in the night
