Itchy Under Toenail
Both of my second toes always have thick hard skin on the sides and tip of my toenails. Sometimes the skin is itchy or hurts. What could it be?
Had side of toenail cut out Monday, still bleeding seeping and bottom of toe real itchy. Is that ok?
Contact your podiatr: Normally, if your nail was cut out by a podiatrist, the bleeding and discharge decreases a little bit every day. It gradually should completely stop, generally within 3-7 days, unless what you had done was a permanent procedure. That could take a few extra days to heal. The itching may be a result of a reaction to the local anesthetic, or possibly the result of a healing infection.
A chair fell on my right foot 2 days ago and now my big toenail is very itchy around the cuticles and it looks cracked. Why is it so itchy?
Well...: Itching can be a sign of healing. Be sure to ice it, elevate it, and apply buddy tape (tape it to your next toe). If it doesn't improve in a week, see your doctor to get an Xray. Hope this helps!
Hi, I have been having this rash? There aren't distinct bumps. But the skin under that toenail is really itchy, slight red and swollen. No pain.
Toe Watch: Redness and swelling are the first two steps in the inflammatory cycle, your body's defense program. This means that something is irritating your toe, be it animal, vegetable or mineral. Remove nail polish. Soak the toe in a solution of water and vinegar (2TPS).Start applying a steroid cream mixed with an anti fungal cream twice daily. You still may have to see a specialist if no improvement.See 1 more doctor answer
I have dry, itchy, cracked skin, and thickened heels on my feet. I have dark toenails & fungus for over twenty years. How can I get rid of this?
Good morning doctor, my feet is so itchy and my toenail is becoming thick and skin of my toe is scaly and when is itchy I scracht it until bloods come?
Athlete's foot: This can be caused by a fungal infection, called tinea pedis (commonly known as athlete's foot). It can also be caused by excessive dryness. Sometimes it is difficult to tell which it is just by looking. A podiatrist could take some skin shavings and send them for biopsy, or start an antifungal cream to see if it improves. If not, moisturizing cream is recommended.See 1 more doctor answer
I developed a red itchy subsequently bumpy skin rash after using tea tree oil on toenails. The rash is on the top and between toes, now shiny.
Allergic reaction: It seems you may be allergic to the tea tree oil and it may have dripped on and between the toes causing the rash and itching. Discontinue using it and topically apply a cortisone cream. You can also take oral Benadryl (diphenhydramine). If this does not resolve, see your podiatrist.
3d ago, my toenail was lifted and bleed. Used betadine, now the skin around base of nail is swollen, watery & itchy. Now trying rivanol + miconazole.
More, more and more.: Without a more complete description, I'm afraid we are both in the dark. A whole lot of conditions can cause an itchy lump, especially on the foot. Just some considerations are size, color, duration and texture.
To start with...: It may be athlete's foot. The best otc medication (in my opinion) is lotrimin (clotrimazole) ultra. Socks should be a synthetic material like those manufactured by thorlo [http://www. Thorlo. Com/]. 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.See 1 more doctor answer
What might be the cause of an itchy, swollen, hot, painful place on the foot that disappears the next day and recurs days later in a different place?
Could be infection: Could be a small foreign body, could be any of a number of things. Why don't you make a virtual consult and we can get further than 400 spaces allow.

Fungal infection: You may have a fungal infection. The problem is that this can spread to your shoes which can then re-infect you. #1 - wear clean socks every day. #2 - see your doctor or a podiatrist to have your feet looked at and possibly started on an antifungal medication. #3 - get from the pharmacy or your podiatrist a spray to use on all your shoes to kill any fungus.See 2 more doctor answers
