Skin changes over the foot: (a) lichenification--the skin becomes diffusely thickened secondary to scratching, although a more doughy thickening can occur which renders the skin--particularly that overlying the first toe web space--stiff, so that it cannot be lifted up (Stemmer's sign); (b) increased skin markings--obvious longitudinal skin markings may be evident and exaggerated by squeezing the toes together; the markings are striking between the first and second toes; (c) damp skin follows the transcutaneous ooze of serum and leads to the persistent presence of flies; (d) mossy foot--because of underlying dilated lymphatics, the surface of the skin produces excess keratin in a rather classic way that visually resembles 'moss', although it feels very hard and rough to the touch.
