    Default the middle toes on my right foot are itchy

    It probably is weird, but why? There is no obvious infection of any sort, but when nothing else occupies my attention. They drive me nuts, for at least he last five years.
    Welcome all input.

    You are not alone. My left index finger itches frequently below the first knuckle. I've scratched myself bloody more than once.

    I heard a study about itching. The more you itch something, the more itchy it makes it. It doesn't help the issue. So, the more you itch it, the itchier it gets.

    I don't know how to break the pattern, though. Put something on it that hurts? When I get poison oak, which is the worst torture ever for me, sometimes it itches so bad I put bleach on it. The searing pain is preferable to the itch.

    Try an anti-fungal cream or a cream with local anaesthetic. May just stop the cycle.
