Persistent itchy rash on feet, has spread on other foot, big toe, original site becoming hard and waxy. Cure?

I have had a rash on my feet for almost 4 weeks now. It started as a severely itchy rash on my left foot with raised bumps. Those bumps then turned into raised welt-type bumps. The skin became very tight and waxy and still remained extremely itchy. However, it didn t seem to spread. Then, after a week or two it began on my right foot as well. And then, it moved to my big toe on both feet. Now I have several very itchy spots on both feet and the original site of the rash is super tough and waxy skin that now has a white crusting on it. Any ideas?!

Hai, Your problem may either be due to contact allergy to your footwear or any other occupational reason or may be due to fungal infection. Avoid synthetic material like plastic, PVC made foot wears. Have a skin clipping and examine for fungus or with a wood's lamp examination you can be diagnosed ant if you take treatment accordingly with the guidance of your dermatologist you will be alright.
