Hi,

Thanks for your response.

I suffer from the allergy more likely during this time of the year ( Winter).

I suffer from it since about one year but not continuously , between time to time. The extent of itching is very high during the night and when I am sleeping and after taking off the shoes. The medication I tried is (Dovobet) used it for one month and it become worse.

No other part of body is infected just the feet.

Looking forward to hear from you.

Thanks XXXXXXX

Brief Answer:
Psoriasis and its management

Detailed Answer:
According to your complaints it seems to be psoriasis.
I would recommend you to apply a topical steroid and salicylic acid combination like clobetasol propionate and salicylic acid cream on the affected areas twice daily along with frequent and regular application of a moisturizing cream containing white soft paraffin on both the feet 2-3 times in a day.
Also take antihistaminic like tablet cetrizine 10 mg once or twice daily depending on the intensity.
Steroidal preparations are prescription drugs and you need to see the doctor in person to get them.
I hope to have answered your query and would be happy to answer any further queries.

Should I use the white parafine in the same time with the combination of clobestol and salicylic acid? Or leave a time between two applications?

How long should I keep use the creams ?

Thanks

Brief Answer:
Apply white soft paraffin immediately after steroid salicylic acid cream

Detailed Answer:
You should apply white soft paraffin immediately after application of clobetasol propionate and salicylic acid combination cream.
You should apply these creams for atleast 2-3 weeks.
