Hello Zahirasalsa, thank you for your question
Before discussing steps to treat wounds on your feet, first, you need to know the underlying cause. Unfortunately you did not clearly describe the location of the wound, whether it was on the soles of the feet, around the toes, or on the instep. Therefore, I will discuss in general the causes of foot injuries.
Here are some of the possible reasons for your complaint:
scabies or scabies, a form of parasitic infection, other than around the toes, can also infect around the fingers and wrists, especially around the genital area
allergic reactions or irritation, usually due to exposure to certain chemical substances, such as detergents, cement, paint, and so on
fungal infections, especially around damp fingers
eczema or dermatitis
Each of the causes above has its own handling steps. Improper treatment, often does not cure and even causes recurrence at a later date. For that, it would be nice if you consulted the nearest dermatologist in your city. In addition to direct observation and touch of the lesion, the doctor can order additional tests such as examining a sample of skin scrapings or the discharge from the skin lesion. After determining the underlying cause of your complaint, then the right medicine can be determined.
As an initial treatment:
keep the foot area clean and make sure it is not damp
use shoes of the right size and always change socks regularly
The area of the wound on the leg should be cleaned and compressed using sterile gauze moistened with an antiseptic solution, such as rivanol
dry the wound and then cover the wound with clean sterile gauze, especially when going out for activities outside the house
avoid scratching or picking at the skin lesions
Hope this information is useful
