I have a weird rash on my foot. That has been persistently itchy, peeling and building. It does not burn, but it is unappetizing to look at. I do take Lyderm for it. It seems to stop the itching, but not the spreading of the rash. It has been on my leg for a year now. Please help.

This is most probably stasis dermatitis (attachment removed to protect patient identity), which occurs in people with poor circulation and in serious cases may develop into ulcers.
Stasis dermatitis is common in people above 50, especially if have heart diseases or overweight or sit for prolonged periods of time. The symptoms include skin discoloration, itching, scaling and ulcers.
