I have a blistery rash on the heel of my foot. I have tried multiple ointments and creams. Nothing helps. 2 weeks now. What could this be?
Acute athletes foot: The best otc medication (in my opinion) is lotrimin (clotrimazole) ultra. Socks should be a synthetic material (i know i'll take heat for this) like those manufactured by thorlo [http://www.Thorlo.Com/]. Dilute vinegar soaks are good as well.

Too often though, there are no outward appearances of skin disruption, dryness or infestation. In those cases, the topical treatments are useless. It is thought that perhaps, the effect of what is known as the circadian rhythm, may be the underlying cause. You need to see a competent specialist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Usually won't matter: Recurrent rashes on the arms and legs of babies are often eczema, which appears as reddened, rough, dry skin areas. On severe eczema areas, the skin will get tiny cracks that ooze moisture. Changing the laundry detergent usually doesn't make a difference in the rash, but parents can try using no detergent for 2-3 weeks and see if the rash resolves (just wash the laundry with hot or warm water). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I hv cellulitics on left leg.
All rashes has been gone but swelling...

Chronic lymphedema: Your lymphatic system that drains fluids from various body parts was likely inflamed during the cellulitis. The resulting leg swelling can take months to years to forever to completely resolve. Use compression hose, elevate leg as much as possible above level of heart and consider use of a compression machine or massage to reduce the fluid burden. Consult with a vascular surgeon may be helpful. ...Read more
