Customer Question

I get a rash on my foot (right foot only) after a day on my feet. I am going on a cruise in a couple of weeks and will be on my feet for days. Every vacation has been ruined by my foot. It starts with a rash on instep moving up my ankle. Then my foot/ankle swells slightly and gets hot, below my ankle bone on the inside only. it gets to the point I can hardly stand to put weight on it.

Hello

This is typical of chronic venous stasis.

See your doctor immediately.

Exercise, compression stockings, these are the treatments.

Clot must be ruled out, particularly if one leg.

There are other causes of rash as well...allergy, autoimmune disease, etc.

You must have a diagnosis to treat.

You also might have gout, another possibility.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
