Suggest remedy for itchy rash in foot

Hello, my 5 year old has a red circle, on the top of his right foot. He's had it for about one month and it started out the size of a dime but has grown to be the size of a quarter but less red. We aren't seeing any rings (as seen in lyme disease rashes) but it itches him from time to time. We thought it might be a bug bite but now are concerned.

Hi,

It could be a patch of discoid eczema. I would recommend you to apply topical steroid like cortisone cream on the affected area twice daily along with frequent and regular application of a moisturizing lotion on the entire foot 2-3 times in a day.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Asmeet Kaur Sawhney, Dermatologist
