The appearance of a red, itchy, rash, and watery rash after wearing socks may indicate contact dermatitis. This condition occurs due to inflammation of the skin that is triggered by contact with an irritating substance (for example, if you are using harsh, nylon socks) or also due to an allergy to certain substances that come into contact with the skin (for example if you are allergic to certain types of socks. Not only is the rash what you have, it can also cause contact dermatitis to cause the skin to feel painful, sore, swollen, blistered, peeling, or pus (if you have a secondary infection).
Apart from contact dermatitis, your skin rash may also occur due to other causes, for example:
Insect bite Folliculitis (hair root infection) Impetigo (a bacterial infection of the superficial skin that causes blistering and pus) Herpes zoster (shingles, occurs due to reactivation of the virus that causes chickenpox) Scabies (scabies, infection with Sarcoptes scabiei mites) Tinea pedis (infection dermatophyte fungus on the feet) Cutaneous Candidiasis (Candida sp. yeast infection) Dermatitis herpetiformis, etc. You should not force the rash on your skin to break. This action, in addition to causing sores and irritation, can also cause the rash on your skin to spread and develop secondary infections, making it harder to heal.
Check your complaint first directly to a doctor or dermatologist to distinguish the possible causes. If it is true that your complaint arises due to contact dermatitis, then the doctor can provide treatment with anti-inflammatory drugs, anti-itching, or antibiotics (if secondary bacterial infection is suspected). If the cause is different, the handling can be different.
Currently, you can do the following tips to improve complaints:
Be diligent in washing your feet with antiseptic soap Dry your feet well after washing your feet and before putting on your feet. Wear clean, dry, soft socks. Also choose comfortable, not cramped, footwear. Do not exchange footwear and socks with other people. Do not apply or sprinkle drugs and any substance to the rash on the feet without a prescription directly from a doctor.
