Blister and scaling : Your symptoms are mostly likely symptoms of a fungal. I prefer antifungal gels held in this region but any prescription antifungal medication. ie: Naftin (naftifine) , Luzu, Spectazole used appropriated should clear it up. To prevent recurrence make sure you were sanitized socks that are changed daily. Do not wear the same shoes daily.Bacterial infection can occur here as well. A culture could be indicated.
