Itching between toes,is it athletes foot

I have this painful itching between my toes on one foot, with white peeling between the toes as well. I dont know if this is athletes foot, or a fungus. Could anyone help with advice on what to use to get rid of it.
Thankyou

sounds like it.. I think the white peeling is the key. Athlete's foot really is just a name for a fungus.. I had it once years and the over the counter creams worked good for it.

What sort of shoes do you wear everyday and for how long?

Yes, its a fungus. Try some lamisil cream. I've been using the cheap stuff from the dollar stores EVERY day, its now under control. Keep you feet dry & clean.

Hi,
Thank's people for your help, I only just found my post, and a couple of new replys as i'm new and dont fully know my way around. I did go to the dollar store but couldnt find Lamasil,but did find another product, which seems to help, as it clears up then returns.... Persistent stuff isn't it? I did read to apply vinegar, or soak in it . Which I did, and it really helps with the itching. I also use tree tea oil, and wear sandals most of the time. All of which helps i think.
Dont know how long I have to keep treating it. I'm certainly more careful when at the pool. Where I'm sure it came from.
Thank you again
Irena
