Help! Frustrated and unsure of what to do next

Postby nicole2567 on Mon Nov 19, 2018 4:39 am

I have had a dry itchy round spot on the bottom of my foot for over a year now. I have visited over 4 medical professionals, I have tried over 6 creams, 2 antibiotics, cordran tape, even a potato! Nothing has worked and it has grown an insane amount. I am unsure what to do at this point. Doctors said it was eczema but I’m not so sure. Tell me what you think please. Photo is most recent

Hi Nicole
What creams have you tried?
when I get a stubern patch that just won't settle, I use viscopaste. My GP won't prescribe it as they disagree it works even though I tell them otherwise so I buy mine online.
I wrap the viscopaste around dry area then cover with a dry bandage. And leave this on over night. By the morning it is usually more settled.
As for daily moisturizer it took me years to find the one that works for me. (dermol) it's a case of trial and error until you find some thing your skin agrees with.
Hope this helps :)
