Is this eczema? Pics included

Hi,

I have been suffering now for nearly six months with terribly itchy feet. It started off like hives or bug bites on my feet. They would go down but flare back up when I scratched. They eventually disappeared after a week or so and now my feet itchy mainly at morning and at night. It is unbearable. My family was convinced it was athlete's foot but after trying every cream, powder and spray available it became to seem it must be something else. The tops and bottom of my feet are what itchy...not between my toes. Although my toes sometimes itch, too, but on the bottoms and tops. It has not spread in the six months I have had it. It is strictly limited to my feet.

I have attached pictures, from the very beginning of this problem to my current standpoint. I'm not sure what this is, but it sounds like it might be eczema and I'm hoping someone can tell me what they think.

Hi,

Any chance you can consult a dermatologist? Eczema usually starts from childhood, any instance of allergic condition when you're young? Does moisturizing, and putting a cool compress help?

Take care,
Mei

The outcome of Eczema is irritated, inflamed and even unbroken skin.
