Itchy bump on underside of pinky toe

Posted , 2 users are following.


I have an itchy bump on the underside of my pinky toe, in the pad. It looks like a patch of dry skin and then brown underneath.

I went to urgent care, and the initial diagnosis was cellulitis based on my initial presentation of red, itchy, swollen toes, mostly on my right foot. Completed 10 days of antibiotics, and everything is pretty much gone, except for the itchy brown lump underneath my pinky toe. I'm now guessing that's where this whole thing started.

I saw a podiatrist after being on the antibiotics for a few days, and they said I have Raynauds. Not sure I believe that, as I have no issues with my hands.

Anyone know what the heck this is, or experienced it before? I've already been to two doctors, and it's still not 100% cleared up.

I'll see if I can figure out how to post a picture of it.
