I have athletes foot between my 4th and pinky toe. And it is swelling after scratching

Hi, I have athlete s foot between my 4th and pinky toe. I scratched it pretty hard this morning, and in the afternoon it was red and swollen underneath ( the pad of the foot) by the pinky toe. It feels tender. Did I scratch too hard or is something else going on?

Yes, it looks like you have scratched it hard . Don't scratch it any more and you can apply an antifungal cream (Candid-B) over that area.

Take Care.
