What on earth are these scabs on the sole of my foot?
Earlier this year, I had what I thought was athlete's foot on the toes of one foot. It took a while but eventually seemed to clear up with over the counter stuff, although the skin under those toes often seems a bit "stretched" now. Yesterday, the sole of that foot felt sore in one spot and I meant to have a look. Still sore today so I eventually took a look and on the sole of my foot are a number of scabs/sores like chicken pox sores. There's about 4/5 of them and they are just in one area on the sole of my foot. What on earth is this? Is is something which will go away or which I need to do something about?
It's a form of eczema that appears on your hands and feet. Err something like pomphylox ... Can't remember exact spelling! Harmless and it goes in time but can get a bit sore. Use a hydrocortisone cream on it
I have a similar sounding sore\sores and it is eczema. I get it around my big toe on left foot only and sometimes the middle of my sole. I get cream from the doctor and use moisturiser cream till it clears up.
It often appears with extremely cold or hot weather.
