So, my SO has been jogging with me now for about a year. She is having an issue with her toes, and I was hoping that maybe someone hear might have some ideas. She wears a pair of Vivobarefoot Neos that I got her. She has all the symptoms of athlete's foot, except it doesn't look like any athlete's foot I've ever had (and I have had it a lot). The area is bright red with small red bumps (not many but a couple per toe) and she says that it burns most intensely where the back of the toe nail meets the skin (the germinal matrix according to a labeled toe chart on google if that helps). She has been treating with OTC anti-fungal treatments for about 7 weeks now with zero success, in fact it has spread. She went to the doctor (GP) around two weeks ago and got a diagnosis of athlete's foot, was given a prescription anti-fungal pill and it didn't help. She has an appointment with a dermatologist set, but it's going to be a wait (another 4 weeks). In the meantime she's miserable. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? I've had fungus problems before, but I am lucky and have never injured myself running/jogging. I am also not competitive and as such have never felt the need to read about running, so if this is some sort of injury or "new runners foot" thing I am clueless :-[ . Your input/experience is greatly appreciated!
