    Athletes Foot

    I had stinky feet and peeling, but I also am diagnosed with Reynalds(sp) so my feet often tingle and itch. The doctor that I saw did not do any tests and did not say that I had athletes foot. She said that if I did, it was very mild and my toenails did not impress her. she said that i should just use lamasil for three months once a day. I never had web toe and what I had was peeling at the sole and dry skin. When I got concerned about the direction from the doctor, I saw another who again did not do any testing, but looked at my feet and nails and said that they were not fungal. I am just concerned because my toenails are dim ( probably from fingernail polish) and they have splits and I have dry feet. Should I see another doctor and ask for a test? Or am I just being nuerotic?
