Dear gordyfar

Many thanks for your question. The small itchy blisters on your feet are due to a form of eczema known as pompholyx.
This will usually require a strong topical steroid, prescribed by your GP or Dermatologist to settle down the inflammation and itching. Alongside this it is important to continue with regular moisturising and avoidance of soaps and perfumed products which may cause further irritation.

I hope you get better soon.

Best wishes
