unexplained itchiness of middle toe on left foot

The underside of my middle toe is incredibly itchy. The skin seems tight, reddish, and swollen. Its driving me nuts. At first I thought it was a bite, but its been about three weeks since the itchiness started. Could it be chilblains? The skin is not cracked or ulcerated. I live on the Canadian west coast where it is damp, but I've never had this before (not that I can remember).My house is dampish, too. My mom suffered from chilblains. And, I had a baby seven months ago--could it be my hormones changing back to "normal?" My hands and feet are often cold... poor circulation? Sounds like chilblains, but why one this toe? I had a toe ring on it that I never took off, could that contribute to it? From what I;ve researched so far, sounds like chilblains, but my toe does not match the pictures I see of it.

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
