I have small cuts between my toes on my right foot, but not on my left foot. If I didn't know better, I'd say they were paper cuts; obviously, they're not, but I'm still weirded out. Is this athlete's foot? what?
Typical symptoms include scaling and peeling in the toe webs (the area between the toes) generally without any accompanying pain, odor, or itching. The infection may also involve the soles of the feet where athlete's foot may present as redness, blistering, and scaling along the sides and soles of the feet, taking on what is termed a moccasin pattern.
Over time, this condition can lead to a secondary bacterial infection. Itâs possible for the fungus to set off a reaction that results in tissue breakdown â soggy skin and eroded areas between the toes. In advanced cases, the toe webs become whitened, softened, and soggy; they may itch severely, and there may be a foul odor. As the condition worsens, painful cracking in the toe webs and some oozing may develop.
