Hi there, so i have what i think is athletes foot or some kind of toe nail infection or fungus, it started off as one white large spot on the nails of each big toe, i went to the pharmacist and they gave me fenticonazole nitrate spray. it doesnt really seem to be working and now ive noticed the skin on the bottom of my big toes is peeling very slightly and getting VERY dirty some how (maybe its the actual fungus?) but whats weird is that its on the big toe nails only?
now im wondering can this spread to my eye? if ive touched my foot (not the directly infected area- that im aware of) and then half an hour later, rubbed my eye can i have transferred it and can this lead to blindness or could it even travel to the brain and give me some kind of brain damage or something? im sorry if it sounds over the top but i just need to know whats the worst that could happen.
your advice is appreciated!!
ps. im going to the doctors tomorrow but they speak very little english here so id like to have some kind of guidance.View Thread
