Ok Thank you. I am diabetic and have a new itchy area on the top of my second toe for about a week.. The area is not red but very itchy especially when I wear closed toe shoes. I have tried rubbing alcohol, Benadryl gel and today I tried cortisone cream. Any suggestions?

I have a small bump on my second toe right under the nail. When I first discovered it I thought it was a blister, I put a bandaid over it and it stopped hurting. But if I am on my feet for a long time it begins to hurt. And if I push on it, it is very tender. I don t know how long it s been there as I check my feet regularly due to having diabetes. Can you tell me what it is and how to get rid of it

I have a sore red swollen second toe on each foot, and do not know why. Could this be a sign of diabetes? Also, the third toe on the right foot nail has a red line across the top of it, and my first toes on both feet, the nail bed looks somewhat purplish in color. No pain any where but the second toes.
