You may be allergic to something that your skin is coming in contact with like a soap or lotion - could also be clothing. Try to find out what is causing the reaction, eliminate it, and see if it gets better. Steroid cream may help. ...Read more

Itchy bump on side of big toe knuckle and on top of knuckle. Isn't painful, but very itchy and irritated when wear close-toed shoes.

Itchy bump on side of big toe knuckle and on top of knuckle. Isn't painful, but very itchy and irritated when wear close-toed shoes.

Try simple first.: I am not clear as to which knuckle you are describing. It is either the joint in the big toe itself or the joint where the big toe meets the main body of the foot. If the bump becomes worse while wearing a certain shoe style, then change the shoes. This may be the easiest solution. Possibly there is an underlying fungal infection. Try using a topical anti fungal. Have it examined by a doctor. ...Read more

Scabies?: When someone has very itchy lesions especially at night involving also the webs of the fingers and toes, the bell of scabies rings in my head. On the other hand, scabies usually affects more parts of the body than the lower extremities. I do agree that you need to see a dermatologist but not a podiatrist since your problem is not confined to the feet. ...Read more
