I have a red rash on the left side of my left big toe. Whatcould it be?

The question is: What is the rash. So without seeing it that is a little difficult. Hence, I would have to refer you to a podiatrist or dermatologist. Common causes of rash on the foot may be anything from fungus, eczema, poison ivy, contact dermatitits.

? athlete's foot: You could consider a trial of athlete's foot spray (usually lotrimin or tinactin spray) which are active against yeasts, e.g. Candida albicans. It is a moist environment that allows for growth of these fungi on the skin of the feet. Give it a try for the next few days and determine if it settles down. Otherwise, see a physician.

My feet are painful swollen and hurts to walk on them red dots rash around toes on each foot over a week now?

Too long to wait...: You need to see your doctor soon. A complete history and physical exam is needed to determine if this problem is isolated to the feet or a symptom of a more generalized condition.

What would cause a red itchy rash on top of foot above toes looks like sunburn, itchy, slightly tender occurred after onset of third day of period?

What would cause a red itchy rash on top of foot above toes looks like sunburn, itchy, slightly tender occurred after onset of third day of period?

I don't think the: Period has anything to do with it. Looks like a sunburn? Any chance it actually is one? From your description simple possibility = rash, worst case = infection. Either way see the foot doc who will know immediately when seeing it. You can try warm compresses and a topical steroid but if no improvement see the doctor.

Cellulitis: What you are describing may be either cellulitis (which is an infection of the skin), or DVT (clot in the veins), either of these require urgent treatment and you should go to the emergency room as soon as possible. If cellulitis, then the treatment is antibiotics and local care. If dvt, then the treatment is blood thinners. The er can make the diagnosis and begin treatment.

Part: left big toe symptoms: redness, swelling, burning pain bout me: I am fit. Zero alcohol question: most common causes of these symtomps?

Part:left big: You could have an infection in the toenail or gouty attack. Need to see a podiatrist to differentiate. If toenail is infected might need cutting it back under local anesthesia and PO and topical antibiotics, to r/o gout need a blood test for uric acid. Either way need to be treated

Red rash on the top of my foot sometimes itch doctors couldn't recognize it?

Red rash on the top of my foot sometimes itch doctors couldn't recognize it?

HMMMMM: If a dr. Could not recognize it, it would be even tougher for us over the computer. Maybe an over the counter steroid cream would help rid of what it may be as that treatment can help most of the non-specific dermatitis like conditions.

Please help! I have red rash on foot/ankle. Could anyone help?

Please help! I have red rash on foot/ankle. Could anyone help?

Rash: Rashes can be caused by a wide variety of things. I would suspect tinea - or athlete's foot. Your podiatrist can help with this even if it isn't tinea.

Eczema vs. Fungal: The two most common causes of foot rash are fungal infection and eczema. Although, there may be other causes as well, these two seem to be encountered most frequently. Without seeing the rash, it is very hard to prescribe a right treatment. I would try to find a primary care physician, unless you have one or a dermatologist to turn to. Those two will need two different kinds of treatment.

I have a rash or something on the side of my foot, its red and thick dry and scaly. What could it be?

Think Athlete's foot: This sounds consistent with athlete's foot, a common cause of scaliness and redness in the feet. Try using Lamisil (terbinafine) at or lotrimin ultra as directed. If these do not work, consult with a podiatrist.

1 bird, 2 stones...: Without seeing the rash and it's exact location, it's a bit challenging to to to exact a treatment. I would apply an over the counter hydro-cortisone cream and a anti-fungal cream, together at the same time, as soon as possible. If no improvement, then see your doctor at his local local surgery for direction.

I have a circular rash on my foot that was once red but is now more brown. It does not itch and has not spread or gotten bigger. Could it be ringworm?

I have a circular rash on my foot that was once red but is now more brown. It does not itch and has not spread or gotten bigger. Could it be ringworm?

Probably not: 'ringworm' as a dermatophytic skin infection usually itches. Nummular eczema sometimes masquerades as 'ringworm' but also itches. Probably a good idea to let your doctor take a look at this. Can't really tell from your description.

Why do the bottoms of my feet itch so badly? It is a deep itch inside my foot, but horrible. No red skin or rash. Not scaley. Thanks!

Nerve problem: This is most likely due to a nerve irritation under the skin. There are multiple causes for this and seeing your podiatrist would help by getting you on the right medication to stop the itching and burning.

Seen in er- inflammation/red rash of (l)foot. Dx: inflammation was related back issue- (herniated l3/4/5) ankylosing spondylis. Is this plausible?

Seen in er- inflammation/red rash of (l)foot. Dx: inflammation was related back issue- (herniated l3/4/5) ankylosing spondylis. Is this plausible?

No/yes: Herniated discs would not be related be related to inflammation of the foot nor ankylosing spondylitis. On the other hand, if you had a spine disease called ankylosing spondylitis, that is associated with peripheral joint inflammation. Ankylosing spondylitis is a diagnosis that needs to be made by a rheumatologist only.
