Getting bumps under and around toes. Skin gets dry and peeling off. What could be this?

I have been getting these little bumps under and around my toes. I thought they were warts but they aren t and they itch and the skin around them has gotten very dry and kind of peeling. How do I treat this to get rid of it ? I have never seen anything like them before. I also thought they were big bites but I don t think that anymore

The bumps could be due to callosities or some hyperkeratotic lesions.You can immerse the area in warm water for 5 minutes and after drying you can apply any OTC creams containing salicylic and lacticacid[16.7%] and leave it overnight.You can continue the treament for a month and report to me.

It seems like a superficial fungal infection in the toes and surrounding areas.

Try Lotrimin ointment locally on the affected area twice a day for 3 weeks. Apply a good moisturizer in between.

You should be fine soon.

Take care.
