Itchie bumps on feet

Posted by chanback on 11/29/01 at 18:47 (065675)

For the last 6 months, off and on, I have had itchie bumps on the pad under my four toes of my left foot. They itch really bad, and when I scratch it welts up and turns red, then turns into hard bumps from 1/4 to 1/2 inch across, then callouses and peel off a month or so later.

I usually use Benadryl cream to keep from itching them.

I was out of town over the holidays and got caught without any cream. After scratching for about 4 days, the original bump turned into a huge blister. Other bumps are appearing and it is starting to spread to my insole and the top of my foot.

It's been diagnozed as dishydrotic eczema, but I really don't think this is what it is.

Any ideas?
