Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A red, watery rash on the feet can indeed be a sign of dermatitis (inflammation of the skin). There are many possible causes of dermatitis, including contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, neurodermatitis, and so on. Most of the mechanisms for this inflammation involve a complex process so that management must be carried out comprehensively, not only with drugs, but also by avoidance of triggers, stress management, lifestyle changes, good personal hygiene, and various other therapeutic modalities. If treatment is not carried out adequately, the symptoms of dermatitis will often recur and recur in the future.
Often, dermatitis can present very similar symptoms to other skin diseases, such as fungal, bacterial, viral, parasitic infections, insect bites, drug eruptions, and so on. Often also, skin rashes that arise due to dermatitis have secondary infections so that they require more complex treatment. Not infrequently, a definite diagnosis can only be made after you go to a doctor or skin specialist and undergo a complex examination, including allergy tests, blood tests, skin biopsy, and so on.
Therefore, if the complaints continue to recur and recur, you should check your complaint directly to a dermatologist. That way, the doctor can provide the right treatment according to the originator of your complaint. Usually, mild conditions will improve with topical drugs. However, more severe conditions may require a variety of other therapeutic modalities.
In the meantime, what you should do is:
Maintain good personal hygiene, especially the skin area of your feet. Be diligent in washing your feet, use an antiseptic soap, then dry your feet well after washing your feet (but don't rub them too much) Do not exchange pants or footwear with other people Do not peel, squeeze, or give indiscriminate handling of foot rashes that appear without doctor's supervision Avoid things that are prone to exacerbating complaints, such as contact with irritating substances (for example detergents), allergens, consumption of certain foods or drinks, excessive friction in the skin area, etc. Also Avoid excessive stress Maintain endurance, namely by eating a nutritionally balanced diet, exercising regularly, and avoiding taking anti-inflammatory or anti-allergic drugs carelessly. Hopefully this helps.
