Allergic reaction: It seems you may be allergic to the tea tree oil and it may have dripped on and between the toes causing the rash and itching. Discontinue using it and topically apply a cortisone cream. You can also take oral Benadryl (diphenhydramine). If this does not resolve, see your podiatrist. ...Read more

Rash: It sounds more likely that it is an allergic reaction to something. The fact that it is not on the palms and soles of your feet makes other bad things less likely. Skin rashes are hard to diagnose and the diagnosis depends on where the rash is, the color, whether there are blotches, raised bumps and many other things. You can buy benadryl (diphenhydramine) in the pharmacy for itching and if it persists see DR. ...Read more

Is allergy an inborn condition?I never had an unpleasant skin allergy(very itchy skin rashes) before until I turned 21.

Yes and no: While you may be born with a propensity toward developing allergies genetically, you actually have to be exposed to an allergen before you become allergic to it. It could happen the first time you are exposed or the hundredth. I, like you, did not start having hayfever symptoms until I was in my 20's. Yet every fall when ragweed is out, symptoms start unless I take my meds during that time of year ...Read more
