About two weeks ago I noticed a itchy bump... blister like in apperance... rising on my left foot... it was uncontrollably itchy but thought it may be a blister from working out a lot... so... the thing is... my left foot DOES NOT SWEAT bc of a surgery I had messing up the nervous system on that side (odd I know) so only my right foot sweats.
I scratched it to the point of a scab. A few days later (I was keeping it clean with peroxide) I noticed more small itchy blisters forming on my dry foot. I didnt think it could be athletes foot since my foot does not sweat... but I do use communial matts at yoga. I figured if it was a fungus it would be on my other foot.
A few more days my foot is not getting better and tiny bumps on my palms and fingers of hands showing up. They itch as well. (like little itchy water blisters... sometimes clustering to look like poison ivy)
I (being a poor college student) scrounge up enough money Fri to go to a doc in the box, who is equally perplexed and thinks I have Hand Foot and Mouth desease and Athletes Foot (but it just doesnt seem feesable because i have no mouth bumps, nor am I sick... they just... ITCH!
Well I decided to get some Tea Tree Oil to treat my mystery rash with and the bumps are only getting worse and itchier and now a couple are starting to show on my other foot.
I am going to try to go to the doctor again... a different one... but if anyone has any ideas i would APPRECIATE IT A LOT!
I have NO clue whats going on... and it makes me apprehensive to go to yoga/work out bc I dont want to spread anything... plus it is getting so itchy its waking up me at night!
I am having what seems to be a simular issue. I came down with a serious case of atheletes foot while in the Marines years ago while in Okinawa Japan. It was horrible and suffering from some jock itch sorry to say, I guess when itching my foot, the fungis also infected the jock itch. Like I say that has been close to 20 years ago.
Over the years in between my little toe on my left foot only, same foot!!
I have an area between the two toes that seems to go dormant for a period of time, then due to heat and sweating, sometimes reappears and I mean ITCH!! The area of the web between the toes turns white, the skin evidently dies and peels off, sometimes hear lately i don't have to treat it, it goes away as quickly as it appeared and is dormant again.
Now for the last couple of years I have had these areas once on the top of the left foot began itching and I mean itch, soon some small blisters about 1/8" in dia. came up (red around the perimeter w/ a puss filled center) kinda reminded me of shingles under my left breast I was told caused by stress!!
I was looking up my symptoms on the internet and the closest one I found was called "BULLOUS TINEA PEDIS"!! I was told to treat it first with over the counter antifungal creams or lotions consisting of TERBINAFINE, CLOTRIMAZOLE, MICONAZOLE. I went to Wallgreens and purchased Wallgreens brand CLOTRIMAZOLE CREME. Also purchased and antifungal spray for my shoes and socks which intend to change at least twice a day from now on, this has to be stopped!!!!!
I have never noticed it spreading to any other place on my body although I have noticed some small area's on a few of my fingers having like dry patches and the skin peels off, I feel there may be a connection, I haven't noticed any blisters though?? Hope this helps!
Strange you mentioned Okinawa. I was stationed there at Kadena AFB 1968-1969 and developed these blisters that appear at the bottom of my feet from time to time. They itch and hurt when pressed on. Unfortunately, I've endured them for over 40 years now and they have never completely gone away. They dissapear sometimes for months, but then come back with a vengance.
No doc I've ever seen has had a diagnosis that concerred with any other. They all have differing opinions. What I have found to be effective is to poke the blisters with a safety pin, drain the fluid, douse with Peroxide and then I use Destin cream. Sometimes the popped blisters get real painful if they are large ones. I don't know any remedy that would avoid the pain associated with them.
Our common denominator seems to be Okinawa. We had those large "community" showers in our baracks which never drained quite well enough. Maybe that's where I picked mine up. I don't know, but they started while I was staioned there and haven't stopped.
I agree and think they are some kind of bacterial infection that lays dormant at times. I have them too, no doctor can diagnose them,I am an avid kayaker so my feet are wet and in wet booties alot in the summer and this seems to make it worse. The only thing that clears them up are antibiotics and even then only keeps them away for 6 or 7 months before you wake up with them itching again.
Dyshidrotic Eczema. Small/medium blisters on sides of fingers, palms , feet ...soles and toes.
I'm using clobetazol ointment and ammonium lactate cream.
It's caused by stress, cleaning agents, perfume/strong smelling soap or cleansers. Stress will invariably bring on a breakout, and continued stress can cause another breakout when the first is still in the "drying up and peeling skin stage"...Stress is your biggest enemy in this game...
Alcohol hand sanitizers are bad, altho a drying agent, they can be too strong and cause further problems...
Hope this helps...
