Small Red Itchy Bumps On Feet
Small red raised itchy bumps on hands and feet for 2 weeks. Has about 20. No improvement with steroid cream. Dr has no idea what they are.
Possible infection: Do the bumps come and go? If so, then they may be hives that would respond more effectively to antihistamines like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or zyrtec. If they remain in place and develop any white or black heads, then a topical antibiotic like Bacitracin or prescription bactroban applied twice daily would help. ...Read more
It could be...: Athlete's foot. The best otc medication (in my opinion) is lotrimin (clotrimazole) ultra. Dilute vinegar soaks are good as well. Dry the inside of your shoes by placing them up-side down over an air return vent at home overnight. If this doesn't make things better in a couple days, see a podiatrist. ...Read more

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.

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

However you may try to take some antihistamine at up to 4x daily (a much higher dose than for hay fever). However if the rash gets worse or lasting for more than a couple of weeks, see your doctor. ...Read more
Petechiae: I would go see a dermatologist. If you stand up a lot and this puts strain on small blood vessels causing them to leak into the skin and appear as small bumps on the legs. What lead me to believe this maybe the cause vs fungus is that when you stand this gets worse. Fungal infection is independent on duration of weight bearing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
