Hello doctor,

I think I have dyshidrotic eczema on my feet, but the little bubbles are starting to get bigger, and the skin around it is cracking, along with one of the bubbles oozing. I have been moisturizing and cleaning it, keeping them covered with bandages, but it does not seem to be getting better.



Welcome to

Do you have a history of atopy or allergies? Are there any aggravation factors? Or does winter aggravates it? Since when it appeared? Is there any pus-filled lesion or painful blisters? Do you scratch or rub the lesion excessively? Do you have any fever? Attach the picture of the lesion for confirmation of diagnosis. Treatment details will be given accordingly.

Thank you doctor,

It started a few days ago. It is very itchy and started out as little bubbles, then got bigger.

Apply Desonide lotion (if oozing lesions) at night for two weeks, Fucidin cream twice daily for seven days (if signs of infection or oozing). Apply Moisturex soft cream apply twice a day for two weeks. Avoid excessive use of harsh soap. Use mild soap like Cetaphil soap, Dove, or Pears. Apply moisturizing lotion (skin first moisturizing lotion) immediately after bath for 20 days. Take tablet Loratadine 10 mg after breakfast for ten days, tablet Levocetirizine 5 mg at night for seven days (if itching). It is an eczematous dermatitis. Follow up for any doubts. Is there any aggravation factor?
