My Toes Are Gross in Closeup

Don't say I didn't warn you.  I cropped the photo a bit so you don't have to look at my hairy old man hobbit toes.  You're welcome.  My foot has been itching like crazy for a few days and my mood has been off.  After a bit of scratching without investigating, assuming it was pollen in the air, I noticed that between my two largest toes on my left foot there's a nice lump with some dead skin in the middle.  It looks suspiciously like a bite.  If I scratch it, my whole foot starts to itch.  I thought at first it was a spider bite, but then io9 told me that spider bites aren't usually spider bites.  All that did was make me a temporary hypochondriac with achy joints as I worry about coming down with MRSA.

I'm pretty sure it's not a flea or a bedbug.  But that leaves me wondering what crawled between my toes and was offended by my dreams of tap dancing.  A lot of cortisone seems to be helping and I'm less concerned about MRSA with the redness confining itself to the immediate area of the...whatever it is.
