Red, painful, itchy bumps on feet. No relief after changing shoes and socks. What to do?

Hi I am 26 years old and about 2 months ago I started getting these bumps on my feet that are small, red, painful and itch . The more I scratch them the more painful they become. By the time I got home one dat it felt like I was walking on golf balls. I explained to my Dr that in one week I changed shoes socks and detergents. She said it might be dishydrotic eczema and prescribed triamcinolone cream. It didn t help then we changed shoes socks and detergents and it worked. Two days ago it came back and its awful I am a Cna and on my feet nonstop. I don t know what to do or whatit is but its horrible. Please help. Sincerely, Nicole

Hello Nicole,

The symptoms as mentioned in your post suggest that you might be having fungal infection in the feet.
Management includes:
1. Keeping the feet dry & avoid too much exposure to water or sweat formation.
2. Antihistamine preparations like cetirizine to reduce the itching sensation & provide symptomatic relief.
3. Application of topical antifungal cream to tackle the causative organism.

If symptoms still persist or aggravate further, then it will be better to consult a Dermatologist & get a proper examination done to find out the actual cause.
So that appropriate management steps could be taken.

Also avoid wearing tight it will cause sweating & predispose to fungal infections.
Wishing you a Good Health.
Thanks & take care.
