I still beleive you are suffering from Athlete's foot. You should continue the treatment for 6 weeks even if the symptoms resolve sooner.
I have had 2 doctors look at this before and confirm that it is not athletes foot, but neither had a solution. One believed it was simply a reaction to a combination of wet and dirt, but that was obvious to me, but it didnt tell me anything. The other had no idea and was surprised by the symtpoms as they did not match athletes foot. This is one of the main reasons it cannot be athletes foot, I DO NOT GET IT WHEN WEARING SHOES, it is when i have bear feet.
Any other suggestions and solutions?
Thanks for the info.
Athlete's foot is not related to wearing shoes.
From the symptoms you described earlier I suspect Athlete's foot. Trying the treatment for 6 continuous weeks if not helpful will not be harmful. It is definitely worth a try.
