Q
Why does it itch between my toes?

A

If you have flaky, itchy skin between your toes, it may be a fungal infection called tinea pedis, or more commonly, athlete's foot.  The spae between your toes is dark, damp, and enclosed most times when you are wearing shoes and socks - all perfect environments for the fungus to grow.  It is important to have this checked out by our doctors at Prairie Path Foot and Ankle and get a diagnosis and treatment plan quickly.  You want to make sure the condition is not causing a break in the skin and not causing a secondary bacterial infection.  If not treated quickly, it may spread to other parts of the foot.
