Hello Aditya, thanks for your question


Based on your description of an itchy skin lesion with pus, it is likely that a bacterial skin infection has occurred. You need to know, bacterial infections of the skin can occur as primary (initial triggers) or secondary (after damage to the skin).


As for some skin diseases that are often located between the toes:


scabies or scabies - a parasitic infection characteristic of infecting a group of people living together (1 house), which causes complaints of itching at night, also spreads to the ankles and hands, between the fingers, the genital area, around the breasts
yeast infection
allergic reactions or irritation due to direct contact with certain substances, such as detergents

Each of the causes above has its own handling steps. If the above causes occur together, the doctor can provide a combination of drugs, either in the form of oral or topical drugs. It would be nice for you to check with the nearest doctor for further examination and treatment. Suggestions for you at this point:

avoid scratching, rubbing, pressing the itchy area
avoid direct exposure to chemical substances, for example using sandals or rubber shoes when washing
keep your foot area clean
compress the area with sterile gauze moistened with a solution of normal saline (0.9% NaCl infusion) for 10-15 minutes, do it every morning and evening every day
If you are active outside the house, it is better if the festering leg is covered with sterile gauze

Hopefully this information is useful
