The skin in-between my toes itches. The skin grows dies and can be peeled off. Underneath the dead skin is new skin that is very white and itches.?

This can be: Due to either a fungus or a bacteria. The key is do not pull at any of the peeling skin as this could cauase a bad infection. You can try a topical antifungal agent. If using creams better to use them at night so as when you walk it does not cause skin chafing. Betadine solution painted with a q tip is another option.

My left foot specifically in between my toes have been itching and its red since last week. Please advice for causes, precautions and treatments.?

Itchy toes: Dry, itchy skin between your toes is often a sign of a fungal infection. The infection can often be cleared using over-the-counter medications like lamisil (terbinafine). If left untreated, the infection may spread to your toenails or other areas of your body, requiring more extensive treatment.

I always get dryness and itching between toes in summer...kindly tell me the reason why I get this and do recommend me any ointment or medicine.

Itching between toes: The most common cause is a fungal infection, known as tinea pedis or Athlete's Foot. The fungus flourishes in warm, moist, dark environments, such as between your toes. It is easily transferred from one person to the next, at gyms and in showers. Over the counter topical creams, lotions and powders are treatment options. There are always other more serious causes, which require a visit to your MD.

Prescriptions: Fungal infections are difficult to get rid of. The most effective way is with prescription antifungals. Blisters between may or may not be associated with a fungus and may be something entirely different. A podiatrist will be able to diagnose and treat these conditions quickly.

There must be more: So the Dr saw you with severe, itchy dermatitis on top of your feet and did not see features of fungus. What, then, was the diagnosis? Allergic contact? And the treatment was Aquaphor????? Sounds like you need a potent prescription ointment, maybe a short course of prednisone [20mg alternate days for 3 doses].

Poor healing wound: A poor healing wound may be a sign of resistant infection and a wound culture will be necessary to choose the right antibiotics. This is done at your doctors office. Poor wound healing can also occur in patients with poor nutrition, diabetes, skin cancer and several other undiagnosed underlying health conditions please schedule appointment with primary care provider to discuss.

Just in between 2 toes I have little tiny clear bumps that you can feel more than see that itch like crazy top of toe itches but no bumps?

Itchy Bumps.: Clear bumps could be anything from an insect bite to a fungal infection. A combination of a steroid /anti fungal cream may just be the ticket. If no improvement, you will need to have it examined.

Hi I got an ant bite on my toe it itches and hurts how do I cure it.?

Time will cure it: This can be painful but it will get better over time. You can pan use topical creams like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or a cortisone cream to make it feel, better. Don't scratch it. You can set yourself up for an infection if you scratch too much.

I have an itchy toe finger. It has two pimples and it hurts and itches?

Itchy digits: Thank you for your question. Itchy toes/fingers (digits) with pimples that hurt may be caused by many things. There are forms of inflammatory conditions of the skin that could cause a rash as well as responses to external sources such allergies to topical agents or otherwise. Having an examination performed by a qualified medical practitioner would be helpful in diagnosis and treatment.
