Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of a nodule (small bump) that feels itchy between the toes most often indicates a fungal infection. As is known, the area between the fingers is a part of the body that is often exposed to high humidity. This high humidity area is ideal for fungal growth. One of the most common types of fungal infections that occur between toes is tinea pedis. This disease is caused by a dermatophyte fungal infection, for example Microsporum, Epidermophyton, or Trichophyton. This fungus gets its essence from the layer of keratin in the outer portion of human skin. This condition causes the skin to become inflamed, so it looks dry, reddish, peeling, scaly, smooth, itchy, or even hot. Typically, this fungal infection of the skin will form a reddish rash, with a firm border, and appear more active on the edges. If not treated properly, this infection can spread to other parts of the body, even spread to other people who come in contact with you, either directly, or indirectly.
Besides tinea pedis, there are many other conditions that can also cause itchy nodules between the toes, including scabies (scabies), impetigo, miliaria (prickly heat), allergic contact dermatitis, pustular psoriasis, folliculitis, cutaneous candidiasis, etc.
You need to check your foot condition directly to the doctor or dermatologist so that the exact cause can be identified. That way, the doctor can give you the best treatment tailored to the underlying conditions. If the originator is a fungal infection, then anti-fungal drugs, both topical and oral, can be given.
In the meantime, the best steps you need to take are:
Do not scratch the nodules that appear, even though it feels itchy Bath and wash your feet diligently and cleanly, use antiseptic soap To relieve itching, sprinkle salicyl bedal between your toes Make sure you always wear dry and clean footwear for every activity If your feet sweat dry immediately Avoid exchanging footwear with others Do not give reckless handling of nodules on the feet without direct advice from the doctor Hope it helps huh ..
