Brief Answer:
Topical steroid, antihistaminic and moisturizing cream

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic,

I have reviewed the attached photographs and it seems to be eczema.

If I was your treating doctor I would recommend you to apply topical steroid like Clobetasol propionate cream on the affected areas twice daily and take antihistaminic like tablet levocetirizine 5 mg once or twice daily depending on the intensity of itching.

These are prescription drugs and you need to see the doctor in person to get them.

Also, apply a moisturizing cream containing white soft paraffin on the entire feet 2-3 times in a day.

Regards
Dr Asmeet
