JACUSTOMER-qogbjcak- :

what do i do for them?

Dr Brims :

Usually just avoiding exposure to skin irritants and keeping the feet moisturized. Cool compresses can help if the blisters are itchy. If your case is mild, it will settle without treatment over a few days or weeks

Cortisone cream may also help if they start to itch

If the doctor gave you those medications then he think you will benefit from them

The cortisone cream may help them subside more quickly, I am not sure why he prescribed antibiotics, some antibiotics help treat pimples

Yes, it is possible for them to get infected if they are not kept clean and are exposed to skin irritants

The feet are naturally dirty

Hello, Most likely they are athlete's foot. That is a fungal infection that usually starts with fluid filled blisters. As the blisters break and the area dries out, it tends to look like this: http://www.healthline.com/health/athletes-foot#Pictures2 Your local medical provider can take a look and make a diagnosis. Keeping the feet clean and dry is essential. You can try over the counter athlete's foot medications from your local pharmacy. Please let me know if you have additional questions.
