Thanks for writing in.
The condition you are describing can be insect bite/contact dermatitis/xerotic eczema/purpura etc.

Also I would like to know-
Since when you have this?
Has it grown slowly?What is the size like?
Is it painful?
Is there itching on foot lesion?

Answer the questions to help you better.

Can you upload photos of the affected area?
Photos can help a lot to predict the condition.

Wherever you have a visible lesion on the skin you can take a close up photograph of it and UPLOAD it in UPLOAD YOUR reports section.

Meanwhile you can apply hydrocortisone cream over the affected area.
You can also take tab Zyrtec twice daily it will help in reducing itching.

Hope this helps.

I will be available for follow up.

For itching you can apply Hydrocortisone cream twice daily and can take antihistaminic like Tab zyrtec twice daily.
