Rash Between Toes Itchy
I have very itchy feet; the soles of my feet and toes are very itchy. I can't see any rash though. I am confused. What could it be?
Foot skin rash itchy and spreading between toes, what to do? I have used curash that stops itchiness for a few hours.
Fungal foot rash:
It appears to be athlete's feet often a rash due to sweating. Aerate your feet at home and wear sandals instead of a closed shoe or sneaker.
You can apply over the counter med: Lotrimin cream 1%
3x/d for a month or so until rash resolves (slow growing). Welcome to Health tap! Dr. Ivy Fisher ...Read more
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. ...Read more

About two months ago I got a tick bite between my toes. It still has flareups of itchiness at random intervals (days to weeks between). It turns red when scratched, but there is no rash or other known symptoms. Could it be scarred tissue?
Just a thought:
But the area between the toes COLLECTS DIRT like a MAGNET...clean the area daily with a soft Q TIP (Cotton swab) You may want to also swab withan OTC (Over the Counter) cortisone cream! Try this for a week-10 days. If this does not resolve your problem you need a "hand on" examination. ...start with your PCP or Family Physician!
Hope this helps

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
