Can you describe: The bump more? Something can itch when irritated or rubbed, so its important to figure out why there is a protrusion.

My 10 year old son has hammer toe's and toenails that curl in toward his toe's when they grow . Is this common?
My son and his fathers second toes slightly curve toward third like in mybprofike pic is my sons foot. Is this hereditary?
Yes it is: This is seen in my practice frequently. The growth plate in the toe due to hereditary reasons, grows unevenly creating a curvature of the long bone (phalanx). Hopefully there will be no symptoms. A possible friction may develop to the adjacent toe. Moleskin, lambswool and or foot powder may help. Hopefully bone resection or hammertoe procedures will never be needed. ...Read more

If the arch collapses, i would wait until he is 3 years old to see if he needs orthotics. See a podiatrist or child orthopod. ...Read more
