Athlete: If you are not part of a athlete team you MUST go as soon as possible (have someone take you) to the nearest Emergency facility. Hope all goes well!

Yes: These are separate germs that can attack separately or at the same time.They involve different parts of the skin. Cool compresses can calm the itching.There are several OTC sprays or lotions for the fungus but the plantar's wart will need some help.A podiatrist or dermatologist would be a good source for care & could fix both issues.
