Thanks for your query;
The commonest skin infection in children affecting the areas of toes and or fingers is scabies and the other cause can be ringworm.
Consult a doctor close by as a physical examination will help tell the difference between the two.
Once the doctor examines and makes his diagnosis he will prescribe the needed treatment.
Take care.
