It is so difficult to say without seeing it, fungus infection usually does not cause broken skin, but usually only red or itchy skin. Maybe your doctor should rather have a look, it could be skin damage due to the treatment you received at the podiatrist. The danger is infection in your foot so rather have it treated sooner than later.
