Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Itching feeling on the soles of the feet can result from a bacterial infection. This infection can occur if your personal hygiene (especially your feet) is not properly maintained. Due to bacterial infection, the skin will release many inflammatory mediators that cause the formation of inflammatory fluid (pus). This is what can make it look like yellowish spots around your itchy skin. Some examples of bacterial infections of the skin of the feet that can have clinical symptoms like the complaints you experience, namely impetigo, folliculitis, and so on.
Apart from bacterial infection, your complaint could also arise as a manifestation of other medical conditions, such as fungal infections (for example tinea pedis), viral infections (for example warts), mite infections (for example scabies), contact dermatitis (skin inflammation due to contact with irritants or irritants). allergies), drug eruptions, seborrheic dermatitis, and so on.
We cannot confirm exactly which cause of the complaint you are experiencing without doing a direct physical examination. Therefore, it would be better if you check your complaint directly to a doctor or a dermatologist. With direct inspection, doctors can generally determine the best treatment. If it is true that the cause is a bacterial infection, then giving appropriate antibiotics can be done, of course accompanied by other therapies according to the complaints you are experiencing, for example itching drugs, and so on.
At this time, make sure you always clean your feet properly, especially after activities outside the home. Use footwear that is also clean, dry, and don't exchange footwear with other people. Avoid too often scratching or peeling the skin of the itchy feet. Also avoid applying anything to the itchy skin unless instructed directly by a doctor. Protect your feet, for example when washing, from direct exposure to substances that have the potential to cause skin irritation or allergies.
