Rash on feet. Itchy, dry and red. Spreading. Suggestions?

My boyfriend has had a really bad rash on his feet. It has lasted over a year and is now extremely itchy. His feet no longer look like a rash, they are just really dry and red. There is a rash that is developing all over his body as tiny little red bumps. It started on his arm and is now all over his back. Any idea of what it could be?

Thanks for writing to us.
From the description provided, I can think of few possibilities in your case
Fungal infection where over feet it can present as a well demarcated red scaly rash or fluid filled lesions, erosions or ulcers or may just present as involvement of web space. It may involve other body areas initially beginning as ed bump which becomes scaly later on
Treatment requires oral and topical antifungal
Psoriasis where scaling redness fissuring of feet might be seen. Treatment requires emollients and steroids
Eczema. Treatment requires steroids and emollients

I would advise you to visit a dermatologist nearby to get your diagnosis confirmed and start with treatment.
Take care
