I have yet another problem ( I feel like I am getting old only 26 with these skin conditions)

My toes are very red,very very itch and swollen.on the bottom of my foot where the toes end it itches and is also swollen and painful........This started a few months back when away and now all over again but this time worse...I have a very old grundgy pair of ugg slippers that I wear all the time without socks could them being gross inside have caused it?I googled my symptoms and I dont think its athlets foot....I seen something about cellitus that scared me I hope thats not what it is......Any ideas?

I would get some anti-fungal cream and try it to see if it's athlete's foot or not. You'll know pretty quickly because you will see an improvement within a day if it's athletes foot. Honestly, wearing old grundgy slippers without socks is a breading ground for foot fungus. Time for some new slippers and I'd wear them with socks.

It probably is fungal. I have the same thing happen every winter even though I only wear cotton, hemp, or wool socks or slippers. My feet are always cold so I hate going w/o my sockies! Mine get better if I let them air out.
