Hello doctor,

I developed a rash on my foot yesterday afternoon. I have not changed soap and I do not wear new clothing. While taking a shower this morning, I washed the area well and applied a steroid (Mometasone). It is still bothering me. I am healthy except for folliculitis under my arms and a branch duct IPMN in the pancreas, for which the doctors are following.



Welcome to

  • What is your complaint in the rash? Do you feel pain or burning sensation or itching?
  • How long have you been on estrogen? Is it static from onset or increasing in size?
  • What are the other areas affected? Looking forward for your response in order to help you.

Thank you doctor,

I am feeling some burning and itching sensation. It is on both the feet, but has not spread. It is static from when I first noticed it. No other parts of my body are affected. I am taking Mometasone for a completely different rash under my arms, which resolved this summer lichen planus. I know it is a strong steroid, so I tried it for this. The steroid really did not help very much. I have been on estrogen patch for seven years that is after my hysterectomy.



Welcome back to

  • Since it is in the starting phase (attachment removed to protect patient identity), there is nothing exactly could be said about it.
  • Nevertheless, it could be erythema annulare centrifugum. Estrogen is the one of the most inflicted drug causing it.
  • In most cases, it is a self-limiting disorder. I suggest you Desonide cream twice daily, a very mild steroid along with antihistamine like Levocetirizine and Montelukast.
