In brief: Itchy toes

Dry, itchy skin between your toes is often a sign of a fungal infection.
The infection can often be cleared using over-the-counter medications like lamisil (terbinafine). If left untreated, the infection may spread to your toenails or other areas of your body, requiring more extensive treatment.
