Athlete's foot: From the sounds of your symptoms, especially the itching may indicate a fungal infection which refers to "Athlete's foot" When there is an inflammation of the skin it can discolor and usually becomes itchy. This can and does cause the toes to swell as well of the rest of the foot to swell. There are topicals that work rather well for this. The generic name is Terbinafine. ...Read more

I have an itchy spot in the sole of my foot that comes and goes for almost a year. I think it might be nerve related as there are no marks or anything?

I have an itchy spot in the sole of my foot that comes and goes for almost a year. I think it might be nerve related as there are no marks or anything?

I would make sure: There is nothing there. Sometimes, a doctor can use a dermascope to ensure there is nothing visible on the skin. Sometimes, fungus may be present which is not always visible to the naked eye. Nerve pain is pretty distinct and a good doctor should know if the pain is nerve related or not by clinical exam. ...Read more

I have a cut on the bottom of my foot, I put a bandaid on it. Later that day I took off the bandaid. I see that there is a big red itchy spot.

Adhesive reaction: If the shape of the red, itchy spot is close to the shape of the bandaide, then this is most likely an allergic reaction to the adhesive. If you applied an ointment to the cut, it could also be a reaction to that as well. Unless your cut was dirty and not cleansed well, it is less likely to be infection developing that quickly. Blister bandages use a different adhesive and could work well. ...Read more

Leech Bite?: It is actually rare to be allergic or to have a reaction to a leech bite.

However, if you are experiencing symptoms such as you describe, then you need to seek medical attention as it may be infected. ...Read more
