Strange scab-like growth under middle toe.

I've had this weird growth of what appeared to just be skin partly underneath my toenail of my middle toe on the right side. It's been that way for at least 2 - 3 years now but more recently it's gotten bigger and has grown a scab-like top on it. I admittedly picked most of the scab off to see if there was something in it but nothing. Just skin. Now the crease in my toe where it bends has hard dry skin and the left side of the toe just before the toenail has a slightly raised bump. I have Raynaud's disease and Eczema.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
You would need to have biopsy of the growth to sort it out.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
