Welcome to HCM.

You may have some allergic reaction on your toe.

May be due to your footwear,shocks.

You can have some anti allergic drug(cetrizine,levocetrizine)to reduce itching.

You can use local application of steroid skin cream.

You can consult dermetologist for further line of treatment.

Thank you.

If it is itchy, scaly and moist, it could be a fungal infection because of poor feet hygiene or other factors like excessive sweating etc. Kindly visit the Dermatologist who will give you the right treatment after properly examining. You may apply moisturer to that are if dry.
