hi..thanks for your query
You might be suffering from eczema of the feet.The causes can be exogenous meaning factors from the environment which lead to the contact eczema or internal which lead to endogenous eczema of hands and feet.
Contact eczema is most common in adults and is very often related to the profession.Contact eczema can be a consequence of allergic reaction or irritation to one or many products at work or at home, such as detergents etc. Causes of allergic contact eczema can be discovered by patch test.
Endogenous eczema:caused by internal factors called atopic hand and feet eczema. They are manifested as a thickening, dryness, scaling and cracking of the skin on hands and feet.
Other common disorder presenting similarly is Psoriasis.
Use emollients in adequate amounts on your feet.You can schedule a meet up with your dermatologist to get topical steroids prescribed to reduce the severity of symptoms.
