Hello, Doctor I’m more or less writing to you out of desperation, I would send attached photos of my soles, but it would be classed as gore. So basically it all started over a year ago, around a week or more after i used a callus-removing scholl scraper or something to that effect, as it happens. I noticed a blister. Thinking nothing of it, I peeled it and went away as they do. I noticed though, the skin underneath although new looked irritated and pink. I still thought nothing of it, but weeks later the skin felt dry, motionless and dead, detached from the other layers.. it was also itchy. when I scratched around, it peeled off with startling ease. but the blistering had spread across a larger area. this went on for months.. regeneration of skin only to have it fall away again, constant pain and inflammation throughout.. throbbing pain, hurting to walk on, turns white in water, and it spread all through the instep, the problem soon became a feature on the other foot, though not as severe. I went to 2 doctors and 3 dermatologists with it, they thought it must not be a fungal/bacteria issue, I must’ve had a skin reaction to shoes or socks. but I was dubious about this. they put me on many creams; canestan, novasone, eleuphrat, whitfield’s – none of them seem to have stopped the cycle. I already got rid of a pair of suspect shoes and had taken drastic measures as far as socks go, and although I predominantly wear flip flops now, my problem sole skin continues, I have noticed though one foot smells different to the other, more pungent and seems to sweat more (I do martial arts so i notice the wetness while barefoot). I am wondering if you or anyone else might know a) what my problem is and b) what can be done?
