In brief: Could be
Usually, impetigo is scabby, crusty, weepy.
Eczema could be the cause, although athlete's foot (fungal infection) or chilblain would be possible too. Chilblain, or pernio, is caused by cool damp conditions and can cause redness, flaking and little red bumps on the toes.

In brief: Doubt impetigo
Impetigo is a superficial skin infection that usually has a 'honey-colored' crust, commonly overlying irritated reddish skin.
What you are describing could be eczema, but that commonly appears on the arms and legs. Tinea pedis (or athlete's foot) could fit your description as could a contact dermatitis. You could try treating it with an anti-fungal product, but see your doctor if persists.

In brief: Uncertain
This can't be diagnosed with the information that is available.
A history, physical examination & other studies may be needed to determine cause/causes. Once accurately assessed a treatment plan can be developed.
