I went to the podiatrist as I have been getting small water blisters on my feet for many years. They appear sporadically sometimes i go for months with clear feet then out of no where i get these small liquid filled blisters on my feet, usually on the outer edges and NEVER itchy. The dermatologist thought it was tinea pedis, but this was not confirmed with a scraping. She told me to use lamasil or terbafine 1% for 2 weeks and then another 2 weeks once skin had cleared. I started to use it and then after 4 days i got this weird red terribly itchy red rash on the tops of my feet and red itchy spots on the bottom, i woke up the next day and it had spread to my other foot. I had never had this type of thing EVER!
Worried, i went to my GP he looked at it and said it was tinea. So he gave me hydrozole and advised to use that for a week and then go back to the lamasil. So i then went to a dermatologist who took a scraping, as i waited for the results i continued to use hydrozole and i am now back on the lamasil. The dermatologist scraping has confirmed it is tinea and i have been using the lamasil as prescribed. I am worried as all up i have been using a combination of the creams for approx 3 weeks with no results.
I have taken other measures like drying my feet after showers, using dettol laundry wash, using sweat wicking socks and trying to air my feet as much as possible.
It just baffles me that i had never had anything red and itchy like this EVER until i started using the lamasil, any ideas or similar experiences?
