Feet question - could be TMI for some people!

OK I 'think' I've got athletes foot. All the skin on the bottom of one of my feet is peeling, and it's really itchy on the ball of my foot - so much so that I've made it sore scratching. There's no skin peeling in between my toes though - and I thought that's where athletes foot starts??

Anyone got any ideas a) if it is athletes foot

b) what do I do about it

c ) how the hell do I stop it feeling so itchy - I can't HELP but scratch it.....

It could well be athlete's foot. Canesten or an anti-fungal athlete's foot cream will help clear it up and stop the itching, and you can get anti-fungal powder specially designed for athlete's foot which you can put in your shoes/socks to keep your feet dry - athlete's foot thrives in damp conditions.
