The top of my husband's left foot, where the hair grows, is itching. The overlying skin is hard and has bumps. It sometimes secretes water. It has been like that for two weeks. We are trying home remedies for itching, such as garlic and apple cider vinegar. Please help.
Please stop using garlic, which can cause further irritation.
Clean the area with warm salt water using gauze.
I suggest applying topical mid-potent steroids like Triamcinolone acetonide 0.1 % cream twice after cleaning the area for two weeks. Consult a specialist, talk with them and take the medications with their consent.
Hope this helps.
