Welcome to HCM
Read your prob, you have to rule the exact cause of itching as fungal infection can be cured after taking medicine n applying ointment. is it fungal infection or allergic dermatitis, for it you should consult with dermatologist n start proper treatment.

Thanks for query,
For chronic fungal infection local application is not enough,
Go for oral antifungal tablet.
Keep space between your two toes dry as wet condition is favourable for fungi to grow.
Use antifungin powder instead cream.
Ok and bye.

Hi Anjana, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Fourm.

Your History suggests you are having ahthlete's foot which is a Fungal Infection of the toes or web spaces between the toes. Kindly get yourself examined by a Dermatologist so that he/she may examine you and Prescribe anti fungal creams for local application after confirming it.

Keep you Foot off water until the infection subsides and keep them dry and clean after bathroom visits.

Stick to your Treatment plan and go for regular follow up.

Wish you Good Health.

Take Care.
