Hi, I believe I have athlete's foot which started out with foot odor and flaking of the skin between my toes and on the ball of my foot. I started using tinactin a couple days ago and as a result, my foot became very dry and cracked and oozing with accompanied pain while standing and walking. Any direction on this would be great, thank you!

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
It is possible that you have an athlete'S foot which later got infected and hence you have developed a bacterial infection too.

Tinactin is also an anti fungal but better medicines are available now.

Following will be the best line of treatment.
Apply clotrimazole ointment in night and sleep.
In morning apply clotrimazole powder.
In evening apply mupirocine cream.

Use this combination for 15 days.
You will get good relief.
Thank you
