Bleeding in between toes.

Recently I get an usual problem when I run.... On my left foot, I get a cut in between my smallest toe and the fourth (ring) toe. My smallest toe is not straight and sits at an angle touching the forth toe. So they probably are rubbing against each other and maybe broken skin is there not healing. Does anyone have any experience of this and know of any way to stop it from happening? Thanks.

Not had that - but have you tried slathering the area in vaseline before you go ?

Sticking plaster?

Maybe something like these until it's healed up?

Not athletes foot is it? where the skin is splitting?

Thanks for all the advice. Some interesting ideas.

Grendel, I have sufffered from it in the past, so it could be caused by that.

I have had it when I've let my toenails get a bit long, a bit of zinc oxide tape around the little toe normally does the trick.
