I have suffered this kind of skin disease. I don't know what it is. It suddenly grow on the upper part of my left foot.I noticed it 2 months ago. At first I don't give any attention. I thought it is just a bite or something that is not really given some attention. After a couple of week, it is a bit itchy. I scratched it every time I want because it is so itchy until it develops into wound. A couple of weeks it becomes larger and it appears red. People that are close to me say that maybe it is a fungi. Some says maybe it is only an allergy. But I never had an allergy before. I have tried many expensive ointment to lessen the itchiness. But among those ointment there is none that has the ability to cure the said skin disease. It is ashamed on my part because every time I went out, people quickly noticed my foot. At present, I take up a medicine. Hope that this will be the cure to my problem. Can you give me some health tips?Thank you!

Have you ever seen a dermatologist? If you've spent much on ointments and nothing works, you might as well go to the dermatologist to have it check out. There are different diseases that only a dermatologist or a person who's had such disease can determine it. You should also consider that it may be stress related. I have stress induced eczema and I wouldn't have known it if I had not gone to the dermatologist. My mom also had the same and she thought it was allergies. She took in medication and used different ointments, this did not do anything to help. The eczema spread to her entire feet which brought extreme itchiness and pain because she kept on removing the skin. Save up for a dermatologist check-up, that's for the best.

It sounds like gout which makes the foot and sometimes hands burn, turn red and swell. It eventually disappears and then returns. I am not sure of it's cause but I do know that certain things will trigger it. You should look it up and see if it applies to you.
