Little itchy bumps on my big toe. What is it?

It could be...: Athlete's foot. The best otc medication (in my opinion) is lotrimin (clotrimazole) ultra. Dilute vinegar soaks are good as well. Dry the inside of your shoes by placing them up-side down over an air return vent at home overnight. If this doesn't make things better in a couple days, see a podiatrist.

Fungus: Blisters can form from severe fungal infection. Since you sweat a lot in your feet, first clean your feet, then stop wearing flip flops. Spray down your shoes and shoes with lysol or bleach your clothes to kill off all fungal spores. Then use spray deodorant on your feet to help prevent excessive sweating, then apply antifungal over the counter cream to your feet 3x daily. Good luck.

What are the small, itchy bumps on the top of my foot?

It depends: In order to give you a better answer you need to describe the bumps or better send a photo. How big are they? Do they itch? What color? The bumps can range from a response to pressure from socks or the shoe (pressure) to a number of skin problems.

Contact allergy?: You may be allergic to one of the ingredients in your shoes. Consult an allergist or dermatologist to find out which ingredient is the problem so that you can purchase shoes without that ingredient. In the meanwhile, consider a sole insert to see it it helps. Topical hydrocortisone may be tried to control the rash but avoidance is the ultimate answer.

See dermatologist: This can be an allergic reaction to the ink and or small granulomas forming in the skin around the ink. They may be able to inject a steroid to calm it down

Multiple causes: This can be a number of skin diseases. Given the location and description the two most likely condition is eczema. Fungus and psoriasis are other possibilities. It would be helpful to have it evaluated by a dermatologist because the treatment of these conditions are different.

A week ago I had a small, itchy, yellowish, fluid-filled bump on the top of my foot. Now I have twenty. Other itchy bumps are on my legs and neck.

Insect bites?: Could be insect bites. Check your bedclothes and do not squeeze the bumps. The next step is to have someone at urgent care check them out so you can receive the proper medication

One foot has small red itchy bumps and scaly peeling skin. 2 different dermatologists diagnosed 2 different conditions. Still no relief. Help.

What are: The 2 diagnosis. Can you show the rash. Will be concerned with scabies or contact dermatitis or impetigo but without picture or diagnosis of the previous Dermatologist or the treatments that did not work it is just a guess.

Bought slippers. Wore them once only woke with 4-5 itchy bumps on my foot. It took a week for them to start to disappear. Now I have 2 more bumps.

Bought slippers. Wore them once only woke with 4-5 itchy bumps on my foot. It took a week for them to start to disappear. Now I have 2 more bumps.

Bumps on foot: Could be due to contact dermititis, meaning due to a substance in the slippers you may have an allergic reaction to the material causing irritation. So best suggestion is to throw away the slippers and use slippers with natural materials and that should not cause you any skin irritations hopefully.

Itchy toe bumps: May be eczema or fungus. Could try desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) or OTC antifungal like tinactin Could also be bacterial infection so try the bacitracin on top of tinactin For eczema use steroids. A great product is lotrisone a steroid and antifungal, but need prescription. F/u with doc urgent care.

Contact allergy: To shoe material with chromate being a likely allergen. Do you have the same problem with non-leather shoes (takes at least a week to tell)? Consult a dermatologist or allergist. In the meanwhile try wearing non-leather shoes or a thick sock with leather shoes. Apply topical hydrocortisone cream. If problem persists, see derm or allergist.

I have tiny itchy bumps on the bottom of my foot. They are all around what used to be a blister and is now a hole in my foot with weird looking skin?

I have tiny itchy bumps on the bottom of my foot. They are all around what used to be a blister and is now a hole in my foot with weird looking skin?

I'm not sure what: Exactly you mean by a whole in the foot...are we speaking of a bonafide ulcer? If so you should see a foot doctor or dermatologist....if its just one of the blisters erupting it sounds more along the lines of a bullous Tinea pedis or athletes foot and a topical antifungal would be a good starting point.
