Redish pink spot on my foot.

8433312?1350615174
I have a redish pink spot on my foot decent in size a little below my toes. It does not hurt or itch ever. I have had it for about a year and it seems to have gotten bigger. Does anyone have any idea of what it is?

Hello,
the exact cause can be confirmed only after a complete evaluation. A medical history and clinical examination is important before ascertaining the cause. Fungal infections, allergies, eczema all can lead to red rash. One possibility for such a chronic rash is lichen simplex chronicus. Lichen Simplex Chronicus is seen in people with eczema. It is non contagious. It is treated like chronic eczema by decreasing water and soap contact, and applying emollients. Topical steroids are almost always needed to control the symptoms. Since it has been since a year with the rash persisting and spreading consult a dermatologist to get the diagnosis confirmed. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
