I have athletes foot with a layer of blisters. I popped the first and the one under and when I popped that there was some blood in it. But there's another deep one under that, that appears to be mostly blood. It really hurts. How do I treat at home?

In brief: Antifungals/Consult

Hello, Athlete's foot with blister formation is usually indicative of a specific type of dermatophyte called Trichophyton Mentagrophytes.
The issue becomes complicated when the blisters can have whats considered a bacterial super infection. I would strongly recommend you seek a specialist consult, especially if this is longstanding. If your foot becomes red, hot, swollen, with malodor head to ER
