What causes ripped toe skin with dampness?

The skin between my pinky toe and index toe (the next one over) seems to be ripped substantially. The rip is damp. I have no idea what could have happened. I did not sustain any injury to my feet lately. What could be wrong?Age: 19Height: 5 8 Weight: 125 lbsMedical history: gastric ulcers within the past year, currently taking Doryx antibiotic

Hello,

The ripped damp skin that you have noticed is likely to be due to a fungal skin infection in the area. Proper anti fungal medicine will help in improvement.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
