    Hi Titu,

     

    It certainly could be an allergic reaction, particularly if you've spent time outdoors without shoes on. If you notice patches that are red, swollen, and itchy it could also be chilblains, which are connected with cold weather. If it doesn't go away quickly it would be worth seeing your doctor about it, because itchy, swollen toes could also be a sign of a more serious condition, such as diabetes. Good luck!
