After going through some home remedies, thinking that this might be some infection she was battling the itching and burning sensation for past 5 days. However, after trying so much of home remedies she felt that she has lost the war against this itching and burning infection which was making her life miserable. She decided to meet dermatologist who can relieve from this situation which was becoming horrible for her day by day. Finally after doing some online search she got an appointment fixed with dermatologist.

After observing her infections, dermatologist prescribed her medicated powder and anti fungal cream along with an advice of keeping her foot dry as far as possible so as to prevent the fungal growth because of which she was experiencing itching and burning sensation.
