Itching between toes

Itching between the fingers is a fairly common disease in the population.Itchy fungal symptoms between toesItching rarely exists as a disease alone. Usually, this is just a symptom of another disease. Finding out the cause of itching is not always easy. It can be anything: from genetic problems to fungal diseases.

Itching is the patient's uncontrolled need for sustained mechanical action on the skin-scratching. In almost all cases, pruritus has a neurotic nature, but sometimes pruritus is an independent disease, in which no obvious skin disease is observed. In some cases, it is used as a symptom of a skin disease, and signs of a skin disease are determined during a medical examination.

Itching has never been characterized by obvious clinical manifestations, and even in the most severe cases of the disease, only scratches can be noticed. Particularly prone to itching are areas of the skin that are particularly soft, such as the elbow bend, the groin area, and between the fingers and toes. In most cases, the disease continues to manifest itself, and some patients experience paroxysmal itching, especially at night.
