Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

As per your complaints , you have developed athletes foot . It usually occurs due to accumulation of excessive sweat in between the toes, initially skin peels followed by cuts in between the toes that is due to fungal infection.

Tinea pedis, is a common infection of the skin of the foot caused by a fungus. The various kinds of fungi that cause athlete's foot belong to a group called dermatophytes.

I would suggest you to keep the foot clean and dry. You can try antifungal cream.

Use powders or soaking crystals, especially medicated powders to help keep your feet dry.

Change your socks daily, or more often, if they become wet, especially from perspiration.

Avoid vinyl, rubber, and plastic shoe materials. These materials do not allow air to flow freely into the shoes.

Hope i have answered your question


Regards,
