Still about red dots on foot...
On the bottom of only my right foot, I have tiny, red dots that itch. I am not sure if this is a fungus or what. Only on my right foot it flakes, and is really dry and crusty. They are very irritating and sprays and creams do nothing. Any ideas?

Thanks :)

Hello,
Without examination, I cannot confirm a diagnosis but it can be eczema. Wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin. You can take some OTC(over the counter) oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin and see if it helps.

For mild-moderate eczema a weak steroid may be used (e.g. hydrocortisone as dermacort), whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid (e.g. clobetasol propionate, fluocinonide). Eczema can be exacerbated by dryness of the skin. Use good quality moisturizers to prevent moisture loss from the skin.

If still the symptoms do not improve then please get a clinical examination done by a dermatologist.

I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
