Red circle on bottom of foot, itching. Any ideas?

Every once in a while (maybe onset by walking a lot) I get a red/purple circle on the bottom if my foot . Sometimes it s in the middle of my heel, right now it s on the back of my heel. Sometimes it s the size of a dime, but this one is across the entire width of my heel. It itches like crazy, and feels like it itches deep down. Any ideas?

Hello, I think it would be tinea pedis , go to dermatologist for perfect diagnosis. If it is tinea pedis, he will give anti fungal tablets and anti fungal cream. You should avoid soap during bath, can use dettol liquid . I hope you will get relief. Good luck.
