Why does the inside of my big toe joint itch a lot?

Why does the inside of my big toe joint itch a lot?

Fungal infection: Perhaps this is a fungal infection of the toes. Is the itching worse after wearing socks & shoes for several hours? Is it worse at the end of the day (assuming you work daytime hours)? Any redness, irritation, peeling skin? It doesn't have to have a foul odor.

I : I can't diagnose you over the internet, but if you've had it for 2 years, and it's now appearing in the same spot on the other big toe, it could be irritation from rubbing because of the shape of your toe or even that your shoe size needs to be increased. While there is no real rush, mom and dad should take you to a podiatrist. Print this out and leave it on the kitchen counter: dear mom and dad of anonymous kid from lansing, mi: your child seems to be concerned enough to write here at avvo about a problem he or she is having in their big toes. My best advice is to take him or her to a podiatrist and find out whether this is anything serious. Besides, he/she is in pain. Sincerely, dr. Fox in ny hope that helps kiddo. Good luck! ...Read more
