Thank you for the question.
Need to be clarified, the medicines you use are prescribed directly by the doctor? If so, what is the doctor's diagnosis of your complaint?
Feet that feels itchy, reddish, runny, festering, and increasingly spreads, most likely indicates that the skin of your foot is infected, for example due to bacteria, parasites, and other microorganisms. Some types of skin infections that are prone to show clinical symptoms as you experience are scabies, impetigo, folliculitis, tinea pedis, abscesses, and so on. Conditions like this, do not get the right treatment, if it continues to spread and spread to people around you. Other factors, such as contact dermatitis, insect bites, seborrheic dermatitis, drug eruptions, and so on can also aggravate this complaint.
To be clear, ideally you need to see yourself directly to a doctor or dermatologist. It is not advisable to use any medication, ointment, or any concoction to deal with complaints on the skin of your feet, without first seeing a doctor. Because, the various possible causes of your complaint, as we have mentioned above, can have different treatments. Improper handling, can not only make complaints do not heal, but can also trigger the emergence of other health problems that are not less dangerous.
As a first step, you can do first:
Be diligent in the shower, and wash your feet using soap and rinse with running water until clean
Dry your body well, then wear loose, clean and soft material
Do not hold, scratch, squeeze, or slough off any rash that appears on the skin
Do not carelessly exchange personal items, including towels, clothing, and toiletries with others
Avoid contact between the skin of your feet with allergy-triggering substances and skin irritation to prevent inflammatory reactions
Drink plenty of water and eat healthy and nutritious foods
Soak in hot water in your clothes, towels and other items that are susceptible to disease-causing microorganisms
Hope this helps ...
