I have two toes on one foot that are very itchy, red and slightly swollen. They are not blistered or cracked. What could it be?

In brief: Tinea Pedis

9 out of 10 times the problem is athletes feet or tinea pedis which is a fungus infection of the skin.
Buy an over the counter fungus cream and apply it twice a day between the toes and on the bottom of the feet for 1 week. Rub it in well. If it doesn't improve in a few days or gets worse, see a local podiatrist.

In brief: Could be..

If the toes are next to each other this maybe the start of an infection/cellulitis.
Athlete's foot (fungal infection) can present this way as well. A reaction to a bug bite can also cause these symptoms. See doctor if worsens or persists.
