|Jasmine recently had an infection between her toes, too! We're not sure what the cause is, just an ambiguous "allergy". She would only lick one foot, not all of them, which I thought was strange.
Anyway, I got some Chlorahexadine from the vet and would soak her paw in that, then rinse it with water (so that if she did lick, she wouldn't lick the Chlorahex), dry it off to the best of my ability, put one of my cotton socks on her foot/leg and wrap the top with a bit of vet wrap to prevent it from falling off (it stuck nicely in the beginning, but towards the end they would start slipping -- it might have been because I was using a different style of sock). The vets sort of frowned on the sock because they said it wouldn't allow her foot to dry, but the socks breathe so well and they weren't tight, and I would dry her foot well beforehand. Everytime I'd take off the sock her foot would be dry. After about a week she finally stopped licking.
