Have tinea pedis on one foot. I apply Clotrimazole.  Use the same sandals, even if I applied the medication and wear the same sandals does it reinfect?

Low but real risk: With sandals, there is a small but present risk of reinfection from wearing them. Because they are so open to air, the risk is much less than say, tennis shoes, where fungal spores are much more apt to thrive in the dark and moist environment. ...Read more

Is micatin (miconazole) foot spray okay to put onto open blisters?

Is micatin (miconazole) foot spray okay to put onto open blisters?

Depends: Depending on the type of the blister, yes and no. Generally, there are two types of blisters, blood-filled or clear fluid filled. Blood filled usually means deeper skin layer damage. If the open blister was a blood-filled blister, i'd advise against it until the deeper skin layer heals. If it was the latter, then it shouldn't be a problem but may sting or irritate your skin. ...Read more

Don't all blisters you get from rubbing your foot against a shoe contain puss?

Don't all blisters you get from rubbing your foot against a shoe contain puss?

Not at all: Blisters from friction will fill with a serrous fluid. Pus can form if they become infected. Smaller blisters should be left intact so as to not allow them to become infected. If they do tear open apply antibiotic ointment and a sterile bandage. If they do not resolve in a week or so be sure to see your doctor. If you do see pus, they are already infected, and you should see a doc much sooner. ...Read more
