I woke up with huge red VERY itchy bumps on my feet. They are also hard, painful, blistered, clear liquid coming out and turned purple. Bug bites?

I would highly: Recommend a visit to a podiatrist or dermatologist. There are a few different things this could be….you may need samples of the fluid or biopsy of the lesion to ultimately figure it out.
There is a blistery form of athletes foot that is possible, bug bite, autominnune reaction, herpes, and the list goes on. ...Read more

A 1000 word picture.: Unfortunately, trying to identify the nature of skin conditions or infections is extremely difficult to do without actually seeing it. Let's face it, a lot of these conditions have the same general appearance. A real time exam or at least several high quality images are necessary for an accurate opinion. ...Read more

My daughter has red itchy bumps on her arms and feet. What could be the cause? She was diagnosed with a staph infection but the bumps persist. Bed bugs were mentioned but she is the only person being bitten. Could this be an allergic reaction to something

My daughter has red itchy bumps on her arms and feet. What could be the cause? She was diagnosed with a staph infection but the bumps persist. Bed bugs were mentioned but she is the only person being bitten. Could this be an allergic reaction to something

This: This is tough to answer without a picture. There are several possibilities including bites (fleas or other), eczema or allergic contact dermatitis, lichen planus, folliculitis (staph infection), and others. I doubt bed bugs given the location. I would recommend you try a moisturizer such as cerave cream twice daily and if not better after a few days consider a trip to the dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment options. Bites are common in kids so that is certainly a possibility. If they are bites, avoidance plus a steroid gel might be beneficial. I hope that helps. ...Read more

What causes an itchy rash with little bumps on top of my feet and redness on lower legs? Also bumps are not itching anymore, now they are dry bumps.

What causes an itchy rash with little bumps on top of my feet and redness on lower legs? Also bumps are not itching anymore, now they are dry bumps.

Allergic reaction: Usually rashes on the top of your feet are casued by some type of allergic reaction or contact dermatits. With your lower legs involved I would rule out edema/swelling as an issue as well. Your socks or shoes could be creating the rash on your feet more so if they got wet while wearing them or if you have changed soaps or detergents. If the rash persists or returns get examined by a doctor. ...Read more

Not hives no redness cluster of small hard clear fluid filled bumps on heel of palm on both hands palms and soles of feet itchy Benadryl (diphenhydramine) no help?

A form of dermatitis: There are a few different conditions that may cause such a presentation. This could be due to an organism. But there are a variety of causes which could be due to eczema or a less common condition called pompholyx. It can be challenging to diagnose in a clinical presentation, so I'm thinking the blisters should be cultured and biopsied. Some rx's usually include a topical steroid. ...Read more

Many answers: There can be many answers to your questions and no one can even guess what they are without a better history and examination. However you may try to take some antihistamine at up to 4x daily (a much higher dose than for hay fever). However if the rash gets worse or lasting for more than a couple of weeks, see your doctor. ...Read more

Please help! I have red itchy bumps on wrist and feet?

Hard to tell: It is very difficult to determine the cause of a rash without seeing it. The bumps could be from scabies, which is a mite obtained from contact with others who have this. Other causes would be an allergic reaction to something you've been exposed to such as plants outside, or soaps. It could also be a medication reaction. There are also many skin diseases that can cause bumps. I suggest being seen ...Read more

Dry the inside of your shoes by placing them up-side down over an air return vent at home overnight. If this doesn't make things better in a couple days, see a podiatrist. ...Read more

I have red itchy bumps on my legs. Sometimes they fade away, when on feet several hrs its worse.?

Petechiae: I would go see a dermatologist. If you stand up a lot and this puts strain on small blood vessels causing them to leak into the skin and appear as small bumps on the legs. What lead me to believe this maybe the cause vs fungus is that when you stand this gets worse. Fungal infection is independent on duration of weight bearing. ...Read more

Infection: Sounds like infection. I would try antibiotics. From what you are describing, I doubt topical would help - you probably need antibiotic pills. So you need to see a doctor. There are probably clinics in your community that are free or accept payment on a sliding scale. Don't know until you ask. ...Read more

I have small bumps on my hands. Not itchy at all. There are two on my feet and they look like they are infected and red. Worried?

Needs to be seen: A rash on the hands could be the sign of something serious -but a full history and examination is necessary to determine that. If you had a photo you could show us on Health Tap, that would help tremendously. Also whether that was the palms or the back of the hands would help narrow down some of the possibilities. Question is if you have other significant symptoms like headache, fevers/chills, etc ...Read more

I have small raised bumps on my feet that are very itchy (especially at night) but not red or inflamed-also some (less) around the knees. Suggestions?

Acute athlete's foot: The first thing that comes to mind is that this is one of the presentations of acute athlete's foot. Use drying soaks (epsom salts or dilute vinegar) and a topical antifungal... I prefer patients use lotrimin ultra or Lamisil (terbinafine) cream. You can use certain-dry pads or solutions to decrease perspiration. If this doesn't work, see a podiatrist and be sure to inform them of what you have tried already. ...Read more

Fungus Tinea pedis: If the bumps Pop and drain and get hard like callous material and later peel off it most Likely is Acute Vessicular Tinea Pedis. That simply put is a fungal infection or a type of athletes foot. See a podiatrist or dermatologist for best result. You may try over the counter meds but may wish to add Nizoral (ketoconazole) Shampoo 1% OTC. Wash at night don't rinse off pat it dry and in am wash it off. ...Read more
