My Feet Are Itching And Burning
Doctor should check: Skin can be from dryness, sensitive skin, scratchy clothes, contact with certain plants, working with fiberglass, etc... A non-medicated skin cream, Hydrocortisone 1% cream (for just a few days), or another anti-itch cream can help (all over-the-counter). A doctor can give a diagnosis and start treatment. For burning sensations, there could also be a nerve problem, so an evaluation will help. ...Read more

Fungus?: There are multiple reasons for itchy feet. A common cause however, is athlete's foot, aka tinea pedis One of the most common presentations is dry, ashen feet, with small "scales" on the plantar surface of feet, extending up the sides. It may/ may not extend between the toes. I would still recommend that you visit a Podiatrist for a thorough evaluation, as your particular cause may be different. ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers
Other symptoms?: Although itching can be caused allergies, compression neuropathies such as carpal tunnel syndrome should also be considered if you have numbness and/or tingling. The numbness is usually worse at night and in the morning. It can also develop during activities such as brushing your teeth, talking on the phone, and driving a car. See a board certified dermatologist or hand surgeon for a evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Feet are blistering athete feet like, burning and itchin blister are pop-up under the skin burning swellin, uncontrolable itching.
Well, : Well, you so seem to be describing athlete's foot, a topical fungal infection, although there are other skin disorders that could also cause itching and blistering, like contact dermatitis (an allergic reaction from something like a dye in a new sock, etc.). Usually fungal infections have a characteristic fungal odor, whereas contact dermatitis doesn't. If you're absolutely miserable, go see a dermatologist or podiatrist right away. But if you'd like to try something yourself first, you can try applying an over-the-counter anti-fungal cream like lamisil, lotrimin or tinactin (tolnaftate) 2-3 times a day and see if it improves. If it doesn't get noticeably better in a day or two, you need to see a doctor. Regardless of what it might be, and as hard as this advice might be to follow, it's very important to not scratch! scratching will only inflame the area and in the case of fungal infections, will only cause it to spread (and put fungal spores under your fingernails). If you do see an improvement in a day or two, it most certainly is a fungal infection. Fungal spores live for 30 days, so just because it clears up in a couple of days doesn't mean you should stop using the fungicidal cream. You should keep using the cream for at least 30 days to prevent recurrence. Hope this helps. Don't scratch, and good luck! ...Read more

I'm having cold feet all day and unknown bruises in my legs also dry skin on feet and my legs and feet hurt often what could cause this?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
