Watch for patterns: It is not uncommon for those with chronic and persistent anxiety to experience physical symptoms due to impact on the immune system. If anxiety is intermittent it may be helpful to monitor onset of symptoms to see if they correlate with life stressors or changes in anxiety.

Wart City.: Hard to tell without really seeing it. However, your description, sounds as though you may have a wart on your foot. This is a virus infection in the skin. To remove all doubt consult with a specialist for a diagnosis and treatment plan. There are many OTC ways to treat your problem, but, the diagnosis has to be confirmed.

Hello doctori had a foot infection from a puncture wound. I took a course of dalacin c but the wound is still sore and I have a rash on my palms and feet. What should I do?

Get evaluated: A puncture wound in the foot is concerning. The depth increases risk for deep seated infection in a joint. Get in to your doc or a wound care center. Imaging, antibiotics and possible wound debridement/surgery may be indicated.

When I was a child the palm of my hand was red raw and sore. The skin would flake off and it was itchy. The ball of my foot also did it. Cause?

When I was a child the palm of my hand was red raw and sore. The skin would flake off and it was itchy. The ball of my foot also did it. Cause?

Possible allergy: It could have been an allergic reaction to something coming in contact with both your hands and feet. It could have been a type of eczema called dyshidrosis. It's unlikely that it was athlete's foot, which doesn't typically affect the palms, especially in children. Without seeing the rash, that's about as far as I can take it.

Tinea Pedis: It sounds like a tinea pedis or athletes foot. Fungus can be very resistant to medication. Put lotrimin (clotrimazole) AF cream as well as hydrocortisone cream 15 three times a day for a week. Also, dry feet and toes carefully, then apply gold bond powder into your socks immediately after bathing or swimming. Good luck.

Wake up with itchy bites on arms and a single bite on sole of foot and have tiny blisters on fingers/palm of hand its been going on for about 2-3month?

May not be bites: It is possible that you have something called hand/foot ezcema or dermatitis, since it has been going on for a long time. You also describe tiny blisters which are found in this condtition. While it is treatable, it is not curable. You should see a dermatologist for treatment and to verify the diagnosis.

Delayed allergy: This sounds like a delayed allergic reaction to the oral medicine that you took. See your doctor for relief and medicine to stop the progression if you haven't already tried benadryl (diphenhydramine).

Hand-foot-and-mouth disease or just a simple oral ulcer/mouth sore. How can I tell?

Hand-foot-and-mouth disease or just a simple oral ulcer/mouth sore. How can I tell?

Don't guess/get exam: You can't; get exam. Canker sores are common aphthous ulcers of mouth that occur situationally, often in response to stressors, are bacterial or viral, & can be treated topically with many otc products that reduce local discomfort & potentially speed healing. However, oral/dental problems & a number of systemic diseases cause canker sore-like lesions--crohn's, behcet's, std (sexually transmitted).

My 8 month son has a sore from hand foot mouth that looks infected. Should I bring him in?

Observe: Hand foot mouth lesions sometimes look infected. If they are infected they are painful and gradually spreading. Observe the spot for more redness and pain and if they keep increasing, or streaks of redness from the spot develop, have the child seen.

How can I tell if I have hand-foot-and-mouth disease or just a simple oral ulcer/mouth sore?

See a dentist: You need to have someone look at the ulcers. Hand foot and mouth disease is a viral infection that has symptoms occurring elsewhere in the body. Mouth ulcers are from a variety of sources and can vary in how long they take to go away or be treated. See your dentist and he or she can help you figure it out.

Hand-foot-and-mouth disease or just a simple oral ulcer/mouth sore? Any serious worry here?

Hand-foot-and-mouth disease or just a simple oral ulcer/mouth sore? Any serious worry here?

Usually Not: The most common rapid-onset mouth sores are aphthous ulcers (canker sores) and herpetic lesions (cold sores) which are usually self limiting and heal in 7-10 days. Laser tx can shorten duration for both and anti-herpetic medications exist. Hf&m is caused by the coxsackie virus and is very contagious in the early stages and usually found in children.

Unknown: Rheumatoid arthritis is usually a more symmetrical disease with multiple small joints affected. The more common condition, osteoarthritis, is more typical of your pattern. However, there are other important factors such as a detailed history and a physical examination that are necessary for an accurate diagnosis in your case.
