Eczema on the Feet: Recognize the Types and Know Your Treatment Options

Posted by on Friday, November 7th, 2014

Most people assume a general practitioner or dermatologist would treat a skin condition like eczema, but podiatrists also treat eczema when it’s found on the feet. In fact, eczema is the most common skin reaction that podiatrists encounter. By definition, eczema is a form of dermatitis (inflammation) of the outermost skin layers. An acute “flare-up” can cause intense itching, redness, edema, discharge, dryness, flaking, blistering, cracking, bleeding, oozing, and crusting. It’s often confused with athlete’s foot, but athlete’s foot rashes come in a very specific pattern, in between the toes or along the sides of the feet. In today’s post, we’ll talk about different types and treatments for eczema of the feet. If you live near Manhattan or Westchester, be sure to visit us for an accurate diagnosis.
