Small Red Itchy Bumps On My Feet Symptoms
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 more

Recommend a visit to a podiatrist or dermatologist. There are a few different things this could be….you may need samples of the fluid or biopsy of the lesion to ultimately figure it out.

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

Hard to tell: It is very difficult to determine the cause of a rash without seeing it. The bumps could be from scabies, which is a mite obtained from contact with others who have this.

I have red itchy bumps on my legs. Sometimes they fade away, when on feet several hrs its worse.?
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 more
Dtr gets red itchy bumps on skin (esp. Feet) in weather warmer than 50 deg F. It is not a fungus or infection, only feels better with cold bath. Why?
Likely heat rash: Heat rashes are very common especially in moist places like the groin, arm pits, and feet. They can take many forms and can itch or not. Usually triggered by hotter temps that you describe but there are substantial individual differences in the level of heat and moisture required for triggering. If it is a huge problem for you, see a Dermatologist for suggested treatment. ...Read more
My daughter has red itchy bumps on her arms and feet. What could be the cause? She was diagnosed with a staph infection but the bumps persist. Bed bugs were mentioned but she is the only person being bitten. Could this be an allergic reaction to something
This: This is tough to answer without a picture. There are several possibilities including bites (fleas or other), eczema or allergic contact dermatitis, lichen planus, folliculitis (staph infection), and others. I doubt bed bugs given the location. I would recommend you try a moisturizer such as cerave cream twice daily and if not better after a few days consider a trip to the dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment options. Bites are common in kids so that is certainly a possibility. If they are bites, avoidance plus a steroid gel might be beneficial. I hope that helps. ...Read more

I had a few itchy bumps around my feet and now after scratching they developed into blisters. What do you recommend?
Athletes foot: Certain types of athletes foot (fungal infections) can cause small blisters (vesicles) to form. Scratching them causes the fluid to be released and the infection spreads. Try an over the counter anti fungal cream as well as some hydrocortisone to control the itching. If they don't improve after a week seek professional care. ...Read more

Many answers: There can be many answers to your questions and no one can even guess what they are without a better history and examination. 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

I have pea-sized, extremely itchy bumps that started on the soles of my feet a couple of days ago, and seem to be spreading to my calves. On my feet they seem to be grouped up, but not on my legs. My skin is dry but lotion doesn't seem to help.
Fungus vs contact: You may have a contact allergy or spreading of the athlete's foot fungus. It is hard to tell for sure based on your description. May try 1% hydrocortisone cream for a few days to see if this helps. If it is from a contact allergy, avoidance of the allergen is the only way to stop it. See your doctor if the problem continues. ...Read more

I have small raised bumps on my feet that are very itchy (especially at night) but not red or inflamed-also some (less) around the knees. Suggestions?
Acute athlete's foot: The first thing that comes to mind is that this is one of the presentations of acute athlete's foot. Use drying soaks (epsom salts or dilute vinegar) and a topical antifungal... I prefer patients use lotrimin ultra or Lamisil (terbinafine) cream. You can use certain-dry pads or solutions to decrease perspiration. If this doesn't work, see a podiatrist and be sure to inform them of what you have tried already. ...Read more

I have small bumps on my hands. Not itchy at all. There are two on my feet and they look like they are infected and red. Worried?
Needs to be seen: A rash on the hands could be the sign of something serious -but a full history and examination is necessary to determine that. If you had a photo you could show us on Health Tap, that would help tremendously. Also whether that was the palms or the back of the hands would help narrow down some of the possibilities. Question is if you have other significant symptoms like headache, fevers/chills, etc ...Read more
