Please consider: in person evaluation by a dermatologist or a podiatrist. Take care.

Consultation: If you haven't been examined by a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment,you should do so. If you have, consult a podiatrist. It's time for a diagnosis to be made and proper treatment administered.

Tricky: dermatologic conditions are hard to discuss without seeing them. infection, mechanical irritation, allergy to a wide variety of materials. The skin gets scarred, flaky and thickens to any chronic irritation. The differentiation is whether it truly spreads or if blistering is just happening at multiple places. if it is ONE foot, infection seems likely.
