A 19-year-old female asked:
About two months ago i got a tick bite between my toes. it still has flareups of itchiness at random intervals (days to weeks between). it turns red when scratched, but there is no rash or other known symptoms. could it be scarred tissue?

Just a thought: but the area between the toes COLLECTS DIRT like a MAGNET...clean the area daily with a soft Q TIP (Cotton swab) You may want to also swab withan OTC (Over the Counter) cortisone cream! Try this for a week-10 days ..if this does not resolve your problem you need a "hand on" examination ....start with your PCP or Family Physician!
Hope this helps
