What could cause swollen, red, painful, and sometimes itchy toes only in the winter season?

What could cause swollen, red, painful, and sometimes itchy toes only in the winter season?

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.

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?

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.

I have swollen n itchy toes. ..Something like chilblains. What should u do to cure?

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.

Swollen itchy bumps on toes. Should I wear sandals?

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.

Toes are itchy, shiny spots on them, some are red in spots. Both little toes are red/ swollen. Tried AF treatment with no success. Not AF??

Tinea pedis: Sounds like tinea pedis (athlete's foot). AF? Anti-fungal? Try some clotrimazole cream in between toes. Just the little toes? Make sure there's no cracks in crease of toes which could be trench foot. Powder might help. Keep dry.
