Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Feet that feels itchy, watery, pus, until it feels painful and swollen, most likely indicate an infection. This infection often occurs due to the entry of bacteria into the skin due to a small wound that is not properly cared for, so that it spreads and causes more severe infection in the surrounding tissue. Some of the possible infections that might trigger your complaint are:
Cutaneous candidiasis, and so on
Not purely due to infection, it could also be that your complaint originates from another skin condition that has a secondary infection that causes pus and swelling. For example, if you previously had insect bites, contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, tumors, or other skin inflammation.
Our advice, looking at your complaints that have been going on for weeks, you should not leave them untreated. Check your complaint directly to a doctor or specialist in skin and genitalia. In conditions that are suspected of being severe, the doctor will generally perform supporting examinations, such as allergy tests, skin biopsy, laboratory tests, and so on. This examination is also intended to assess the presence or absence of other conditions that can cause a decrease in endurance, making it easier for you to experience infections, for example diabetes, HIV / AIDS, and so on.
In the meantime, you can first clean your feet regularly using good quality water and an antiseptic soap. Clean the discharge well using a clean gauze moistened with intravenous fluids (NaCl) or an antiseptic solution (povidone iodine). Avoid scratching the rash excessively on the skin, especially using dirty hands or nails. Always wear pants and footwear that are clean, dry, and not exchanged with other people to minimize the risk of transmission. If the pain is very intense, you can first take paracetamol before seeing a doctor.
I hope this helps.
