I have a itching/burning rash on the tops of my feet. The rash looks like a contact dermatitis but I recently had an URI and this is the second time I have had these symptons after an URI.

Thanks for your question.

You have burning itchy rash on top of your feet.

You tried OTC antifungal medications & natural remedies without any relief.

If it is indeed contact dermatitis, then you need to apply potent steroid cream.

You can start with over the counter hydrocortisone 1% cream twice daily for a week.

If there is no improvement or marginal improvement, then you need to see your doctor for a prescription strength steroid ointment.

Could there be any relationship between and URI and a reocuring foot rash?
