I'm not sure if I have a cut under my big toe, or if its just cracked skin. It's something that comes and goes, butcauses a lot of pain and discomfort. What should I do?
Skin Fissures: Most skin softeners are inadequate when treating stubborn heel callus and heel fissures. A urea based cream or sal acid based cream is necessary to soften these thick calluses. Periodic debridement with a pumice stone or callus file is also a must. You can even glue fissures together with crazy glue. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

On my right second toe, the skin is peeling off and the skin is cracked and it is starting on my left second toe. What is the diagnosis and treatment?
Maybe both: If there is an infection definitely us a antibiotic. If the toe is red and tender get a antibiotic pill. If it is not infected and just cracked you can have your podiatrist trim the margins down and lotion it - often with antibiotic cream and this will heal faster. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No tdap shot also stepped by rusty stairs or rusty spots with cracked open split skin red thats hurts in between toe worry about tetanus ?
I doubt it ...: but maybe there are a few too many uncommon events for comfort: open skin, rusty spots, etc. The signs and symptoms of tetanus (lock jaw) are not pain where it entered but muscle spasms, jaw cramping, trouble swallowing etc. But I think a prompt doctor visit is warranted in any case for a brief exam and updating your tetanus vaccine at a minimum. Call today/now. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Can you have athlete's foot without cracked peeling skin? I've had athlete's foot before and it was cracked and peeling skin between my toes. Now I have itchiness and burning between my small toes, but no signs like before. Is this also athlete's foot? Wi
Different : Different fungi exhibit different patterns and characteristics. As dr. Fowler suggested, try using an over-the-counter anti-fungal like lotrimin, Lamisil or tinactin, (tolnaftate) twice a day. If you don't see any improvement in a few days, see a podiatrist or dermatologist, as it might not be a fungus. If you do see an improvement, keep using the cream twice a day for 30 days, since fungal spores live for 30 days. If you keep getting athlete's foot, you might want to keep using an anti-fungal cream once a day for life. There is also something called a steri-shoe, which is an ultraviolet light that will sterilize the insides of your shoes in 40 minutes. If you keep getting reinfected, you might want to invest in that. I've attached a link. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Crack in foot skin: Hello ~ every one will tell you this is due to dry skin on the feet and tell you to moisturise. However its most often due to fungal infection, like athletes foot. Get some OTC LAMISIL (terbinafine) -AT apply twice daily for about a month - 6 weeks, apply your moisturisers in between the cream applications. If it does not go away see a dermatologist because you may need ORAL LAMISIL (terbinafine) for 90d to cure permanently ...Read more
