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.

Try using a topical anti fungal. Have it examined by a doctor. ...Read more
