Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Your feet are most likely to have an infection due to exposure to bacteria and dirt in the cement and sand. The entry of dirt and bacteria can be through the invisible skin crevices that are formed because you often scratch the itchy area. So the first suggestion is that even though we know it's very itchy, avoid scratching that part. To reduce itching, cold compress the itchy area.
After that, because there has been an infection, and you may need further treatment using antibiotics, check with your doctor, so that wound care, cleaning, and antibiotics can be prescribed to you according to your condition.
After that, you can also ask questions about the itch complaints that you experience, or can immediately consult a dermatologist. This is because the appearance of pus is only a side effect due to you scratching. Whole skin and not scratched often will not produce pus if exposed to sand and cement. And you scratch because of the itching. So it's not just pus, this itchy case must also be treated. The cause can be due to allergies, dry skin or xerosis, nerve disorders and symptoms of diabetes. By checking the symptoms of itching, you can get the right treatment and avoid the same conditions over and over in the future.
Meanwhile, keep your feet clean and dry, wear boots so that your feet are no longer exposed to dirt, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
