common type of athlete’s foot causes cracking or scaling of the skin,
but you may also have mild swelling, blisters, or weeping ulcers.

changes in nail texture (thick or flaky), you should consult your doctor
because Athlete’s Foot 1% w/w Cream is not appropriate for this type
of infection.

more than the other, where it can spread further between the legs to
the buttocks, or up towards the stomach. Dhobie itch looks like a
clearly bordered rash, which may have blisters.
