Do blisters between toes indicate athlete's foot ?

I discovered a couple of whitish blisters between my 5th and 4th toe that smelt very bad when i popped them. It was only on one foot. Is it athlete s foot? I shower with slops on but ALWAYS wear closed shoes.

Hello and welcome to healthcare magic!!!
It looks like a bacterial or more likely fungal infection. it is better you went to the doctor or ER and got it thoroughly cleaned and dressing done and also take proper medication and in the future maintain proper hygiene and care of the feet.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
These could mean a fungal or a bacterial infection as well, it could also be athlet's foot, but this mandates an examination .

For now, make sure you do not allow any moisture collection between your toes, use powder to keep it dry, avoid wearing socks and covered foot wear for a while, and do not scratch or meddle with them , as they can get infected more.

Visit the doctor soon , and get a sugar test for diabetes as well

Wish you good health
