Toes become itchy around the nail bed, looks like blisters. Is it fungus ?

in last week or so toes 2 and 3 on both feet have suddenly become itchy around the nail bed. Can hurt too. Nothing between my toes, no cracking or scaling of the skin though it feels damp between the toes, they are totally dry between the toes. Came out of nowhere. Almost looks like blisters, but very diffuse. I tried some athlete s foot spray this morning but it seems the same. I feel fine. This does seem like it might be a fungus.

Dermatologist 's  Response
It could be fungal infection. As a general precautionary measure-
1) don't wear ill fitted occlusive shoes.
2)wear cotton socks and a comfortable foot wear.
3)Always dry your feet and dust it with antifungal powder prior to wearing foot wear.
Consult your dermatologist so that a confirmed diagnosis can be made and further treatment can be planned. Take care.
