Hello Santi, Thank you for the question.
How long has this complaint occurred? Is this complaint accompanied by dry skin, scaly skin, or chapped skin? Have you ever consulted with further doctors to ascertain the cause? If your child experiences certain symptoms that have occurred for some time, you should immediately consult a doctor further because only with a doctor's examination the cause of these symptoms can be known with certainty.
The following are some of the causes of itching complaints on the soles of the feet:
Please consult with your pediatrician or dermatologist for further examination. The doctor needs to ask more about these symptoms, physically examine your child including the soles of his feet, and perform other examinations if necessary such as skin scrapings. After confirming the cause of the examination, the new doctor can provide appropriate treatment.
Please do the following suggestions:
Avoid wearing shoes for too long for a while
always use shoes and socks that fit your child's foot size
always keep your child's feet clean, if you wash your child's feet make sure to dry their feet dry
if the skin appears dry, use an oil-based moisturizer such as petroleum jelly to keep the feet moisturized
if itching is very annoying, use salicyl powder or calamine lotion to treat itching
avoid bathing with hot water
always wash sheets, pillowcases and bolsters, and blankets regularly with warm water
avoid children from various personal items with others such as towels, clothes, socks
