Itchy small toe, looks like spreading

Hi, its been for 3 weeks now. My small toe started to become very dry, slightly itching. I thought it might just be temporary. My second toe is now also slighty itching. It looks like my 2 toes are very very dry, even if I put on cream. It starts to feel hard, like very dry skin.

There are also very small darker spots on the top of my foot, but I dont think it has got something to do with my dry toes.

What can it be? What can I use to cure? Might it be scabies? (read bout it, but im very clean person) I am in faraway England away from my homecountry SA, Im a bit worried. Please help me! Thank you.

Sorry for the delay in respomding I was O`seas
It sounds as if you have a fungal infection, and the dark spots may be fungal as well, I suggest you get a over the counter athletes foot cream and see if this helps

You may have athletes foot (Fungus infection) which always starts at the small toe from where it spreads. Never put moisterizing cream between your toes! Try "Lamisal" anti-fungal ointment - it works really quickly.
