I Have A Lump On My Toe
I have a lump on my toe and its really itchy, how do you get rid of it and in between my toes are peeling and also really itchy?

Inflammatory conditions that involve the joint can also cause areas like you are describing as can benign tumors. I would certainly continue followup through a foot specialist to ensure accurate diagnosis and treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
