I have recurrent athletes foot, I do everything right, I dry my toes really carefully, I wear flip flops at the pool, I try not to let my feet sweat! I treat it at home and it comes straight back within a week or so.

I think the problem is my little toe, its very curled and grows under the next toe - they are quite difficult to pull apart so its ideal 'breeding' ground [vom] It like the bone in my little toe is actually curled. You cannot see most of my little toe nail if you look at my toes.

I also get mega callouses on the soles of my feet, chiropody gets rid of them but they come back - again I think I am walking weirdly because my little toe basically provides no support. My big toe is small as well and I don't think that provides much support either! Oh and I wear my shoes down very unevely - they end up on a slope from left to right.

I am fat so I am worried the Dr will just say - well what do you expect fattie and do nothing.

My Sister had very bad atheletes foot (which is ironic as she does no exercise...)

Any ways, her doc told her to take zinc supplement...?
