Many possibilities


Joint swelling is a sign of inflammation. If chronic , it can be related to a systemic cause such as autoimmune disorders (lupus), or age-related degenerative cause (osteoarthritis). If is is self-limited, a minor injury may be the cause. Calluses are caused by chronic pressure. "Bumps" could be anything but may indicate chronic joint disease. See your physician for evaluation.

Scabies?


When someone has very itchy lesions especially at night involving also the webs of the fingers and toes, the bell of Scabies rings in my head. On the other hand, scabies usually affects more parts of the body than the lower extremities. I do agree that you need to see a dermatologist but not a podiatrist since your problem is not confined to the feet.

Plastic surgeons who specialize in hands, which are exceedingly complex mechanisms. I doubt you will find anyone to do this because post-operative finger function would likely be interfered with. There at some changes of aging that we just have to learn to accept gracefully. Better to work on wowing people with your sparkling personality, and they will not notice your hands, nor will they care.

These sound like subcutaneous (under the skin) nodules. These can be seen in certain types of arthritis(i.e. rheumatoid), and other types autoimmune disorders. This really is an issue that should be evaluated by a dermatologist. Please encourage your friend to make an appointment.
