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

I've got dirt on the left side of my big toe between the nail and the skin and its itchy. What is the best way of getting it out?

Onychomycosis: Fungus conditions can often mimic "dirt" and should be considered. Soaking in an antiseptic soap solution that is tepid (not warm or hot) with soft hydrogen peroxide q-tip removal may help. Including an OTC anti-fungal agent, such as Lamisil (terbinafine) AF, may be used after soaks may help relieve the "itching" sensation. ...Read more

There are 3 white itchy bumps on the bottom of my big toe. They are so itchy and when I sweat they itch even more, what could it be?

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

My knees have started turning red and itchy and the tops of my feet in a red like from big toe to ankle- symmetrical, what's going on?

My so got stitches on the crease of his big toe (awkward spot) and now has a white itchy bump, blister like but harder, that's on his toe. Infection?
