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

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.

MY big toes have started itching. It isn't just one big toe on one foot- they both itchy at some point but not together. No rash, discolour. Just itch?
Life's an itch.: There doesn't necessarily have to be a rash or discoloration in the early stages of athlete's foot. Itching could be the only symptom at first. Having said that, I would try to relieve the itching first. Topical cortisone cream might just be the ticket. If a rash should develop later, then a topical antifungal can be used. ...Read more
