  • Actually sounds like another form of fungus to me. You can treat it like athletes foot and see if it helps. I hope your feet feel better. I know it is a pain.

  • No athletes foot is more like a scaly rash its usually pink or red. Sounds like toenail fungus.

  • No, that's a fungus under your nail. Although you might have athelete's foot as well if it itches, especially between your toes. There are some anti-fungal treatments that you paint onto your toe nails like polish at Walgreens, try that for the greenish color. It should clear up pretty easily.
