No, I am not a diabetic. I do not have a similar rash anywhere else, though I believe at one point I did have a similiar rash like this on the top of my right foot. This is why I thought it was athlete't feet, because of new shoes or because I do tend to wear flip flops a lot during the summer months. I believe I used the antifungal cream on the right foot at it did make the rash go awaym but not on the left foot.
I have no history of anxiety/Seborrheic dermatitis/eczema. I am not on any medication for any sustemic disease.
The rash does appear to be of a fungal infection of the foot.It appears that there has been use of a steroid cream and secondary infection in the lesion in the past .Perhaps use of antibiotics(Oral as well as local) along with the antifungal cream may help the situation.Oral antifungal drugs may also be used.Another possibility is the presence of allergic dermatitis/drug allergy or eczema along with the fungal infection.You need to see your PCP/GP who can examine you and treat the problem after examining and investigating you.If the lesion persists the help of a dermatologist may be sought.
Thank you for the informaton. Well that is a little bit of a relief that it's only an fungal infection. You mentioned the use of antibiotics and allergic dermatits. Is that something I can get OTC or do I need to see a Doctor to presribe all of this.
I appreciate the excellent information you have provided me. I will book an apt. with my pcp.
Thank you Dr. Aren for all your help.
