    I have had the big toe bone sticking out and got red for a couple years. It came about after a leg fracture and leg healed a little shorter and crooked.

    It would drive me nuts at night giving AD/ sweats if it touched anything. For the last 3-4 years I have been putting Duo Derm (the thickest one) on it and makes a big difference. I have gone to podiatrist about it and she is satisfied with way I am managing it. says I can't got to wound clinic because skin is not broken ( that's the way I want to keep it)
    I look for duo derm on eBay . I put it on and usually lasts about 2 weeks through showers, etc.

    It might be to your advantage to get a pair of therapeutic shoes or a brace - You have pressure areas on your our feet that need to be addressed. A consult to a professional orthotist or prosthetist could either brace your foot during the day or provide a brace to prevent further breakdown
