Causes Of Itchy Swollen My Toe
Erythromelagia?: This is characterized by burning pain and warmth and redness of the extremities. Although your description does not completely match what is considered erythromelagia this is the characteristic description. Itchy toes always make one think of fungus infection - athletes foot. In winter wearing heavier shoes and boots may be involved, or else you are allergic to your winter boots.See 1 more doctor answer
I stepped on something a week ago and it caused an intense burning pain and now I have an itchy swollen bump on my toe?
Stinging Pain.: You description sounds as though you have been stung, injected or otherwise bitten by a critter. A typical foreign body usually does not have "intense burning" as an immediate result. While your waiting for the appointment to the doctor, try applying moist heat for a while. You can also try cold application, just to see which works better.See 1 more doctor answer
What might be the cause of an itchy, swollen, hot, painful place on the foot that disappears the next day and recurs days later in a different place?
Could be infection: Could be a small foreign body, could be any of a number of things. Why don't you make a virtual consult and we can get further than 400 spaces allow.
Stay warm and dry: Chilblains can be prevented by keeping your feet warm and dry. Sometimes Hydrocortisone 1% cream can be used if the skin is itchy and irratated. It is important to find a brand of socks that do not make your feet sweat because the moisture is problematic. A brand that I highly recommend is smartwool.See 1 more doctor answer
My toes are swollen, itchy and hurt when I walk. What could this be and what should be done about it?
Sounds like: Infection of some type: either severe athletes foot or allaergic reaction. Often a secondary bacterial infection can also be present in either case.
Raynaud's phenomenon: This problem could be caused by many things but it sounds like Raynaud's phenomenon which is a problem with the circulation in the fingers. I recommend you see your doctor about it when it happens.
Up to you: Wearing an open sandal may help to dry out the area if it is moist. I would start to use a topical antifungal to the area to see if you can rid of it.See 1 more doctor answer
Antifungal cream: It could be a fungal infection. You could try an otc antifungal cream. However, if your toe is red and swollen, it could be a bacterial infection and you would need to see your podiatrist.
Many things: This problem can only be solved by seeing your doctor and being evaluated face-to-face. After a thorough examination, your doctor should be able to tell you what's wrong and what to do about it.
Toes are swollen and purply, red colour. The rest of the feet are normal colour but swollen. Sometimes gets really hot and itchy. Help?
It may be: Infected. If this continues - consider consultation with a podiatrist or your physician. Take care.
