    I've had what I called a mild case of athlete's foot. I didn't have itching between the toes. Every now and then I would have itching on the sides of my feet.

    Went through one tube in ~60 days and it temporarily cured the interdigital cracking next to little toe. Started second tube and had severe allergic reaction. Blisters and discoloration wherever I had applied Naftin gel to my toes. Stopped using a week ago. Blisters are not spreading but not going away. I'll go to urgent care.

    Naftin was prescribed for Athlete's Foot. Told to apply all over both feet nightly for 6-8 weeks. Had to stop after 5 days, account reaction. Red rash of tiny bumps initially. Now, blisters and swelling along with the red rash. Will return to the dermatologist if the blistering doesn't clear up soon.
