Athletes foot

Someone please help I'm getting desperate.
I am convinced I have a patch of athletes foot on my chin. It is the size of a 10p and growing. It is dry flakey and scaly. The itching is awful. I have tried normal athletes foot cream which did seem to help initially but now it's getting worse not better.
Someone recommended apple cider vinegar but now as there are tiny blisters I'm not sure about this.
I have just rang the GP and can't get a non urgent appointment for 3 weeks.
There must be something I can do to stop the itch and clear it up, I feel so self conscious.

Just get the cream from the chemist. It works a treat

I would ask the pharmacist, it seems unlikely that it's athletes foot on your chin.

Eczema seems more likely, but the great thing about it being on your face is it's at least easy to show someone.
