What are the symptoms of athlete s foot?

For the past week, the forth toe on my right foot has been bothering me. At first I had pain and a burning sensation as if an ant bit me. When I looked at my toe I saw and felt nothing except a small pimple like bump. The toe now itches especially when wearing close toed shoes. Just yesterday, the same thing happened to my left foot middle and second toe. Only this time there was no bump. Today both feet are itching. Is this athlete s foot?

I feel you are using pointed shoes, can you tell me the shape of your shoes? wear wide shaped shoes in the front, that will solve your problem.
