Cover w/occlusion...: With a break in the skin from either eczema (dry skin condition) and/or blisters, it hurts when pressure is applied on the foot because the skin will stretch and the sites are "raw".

My child has been suffering of eczema on her feet. Do you have a fast cure?

Another thought: There is a condition called juvenile plantar dermatosis which may be associated with repeated wet and dry cycles to skin of feet (lots of sweating and drying) that can cause cracking and peeling. In addition to dr. Eastern's recommendations, you will want to try to keep the feet dry. If no cracks are present, you can try topical antiperspirant called certain dry otc, but will burn if open skin.

My sister has little bumps on the bottom of her foot that sometimes itch is that part of her eczema?

"Feetches"=ItchyFeet: Eczema is part of a spectrum of skin sensitivities so maybe, aside from her eczema in the usual locations, her feet are sensitive to something. Maybe some shoes, or socks, or other things her feet contact. Because the skin is so different (thicker, tougher) on the bottoms (soles) of her feet, they may show itchy bumps instead of the usual rash. Have her doctor take a look.
