I have infection on areola (eczema, says my doctor). She said it will cure with time. Will it? Can I do something about it? Any home remedy? Anything?
Antibiotics: Normally if you have an infection you need antibiotics.
Eczema of feet: You can get painful; small blister like lesions on soles of feet or palms of heads called dyshidrotic eczema. It is made worse by summer heat or dry winter air and usually itches and is painful. I t can cause cracking of skin on toes or fingers. It affects 10% women and 4% of mean and usually starts between ages 20-40. You should see a dermatologist
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". A way to calm the foot as well as provide some counter for the dryness is to apply cream, lotion and/or ointment under occlusion (coverage) - using such things as saran wrap, gel socks and/or bandage dressing.
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.See 1 more doctor answer

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.
