After 4 months of treatment for elementary school son, various anti-fungal creams and home remedy, including tea tree oil, neosporin, apple cider vinegar soak, betadine/hydrogen peroxide soak, vapo rub etc, none of them really worked. He saw a dermatologist today which confirmed he doesn't have athlete's foot (it's really rare for children to get athelete's foot), but a staph infection, which also caused small bumps, redness and skin peeling between toes and bottom of feet. This bacterial infection on the feet also caused id reaction (rash to whole body). Now the proper treatment is soak whole body in 1/8 chlorox bath, mupirocin ointment for feet (to treat bacterial infection), and derma smooth oil for body.
