Brief Answer: May be eczema Detailed Answer: Hi, I have gone through your query. Red dots with itch over the toes are usually seen in eczema. But it can be due to bacterial or yeast infection also. I need to see the picture of the lesion to help you out further. Kindly upload the pictures and if you have any problem uploading then you can mail them to YYYY@YYYY with my name in the subject (Sub : Attn Dr. Gaurav Katiyar ) You also have yeast infection which I assume is confirmed. For that I advise to take single dose of fluconazole orally and ointment containing clotrimazole or nystatin can be applied locally. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions with picture of lesion I will be happy to help.
