A Rash Judgement

            Foot rashes have a wide variety of causes, including reactions to drugs, eczema, shingles, and chemical dermatitis.  Contact with poisonous plants such as poison ivy or poison oak are common sources of foot rashes during warm months when many people walk barefoot or in sandals.  Foot rashes can appear on the soles and tops of the feet and even in between the toes.  Some foot rashes are extremely itchy.  The most common causes of foot rashes are dry skin, exposure to heat, and athlete's foot.  Only by having the rash examined, will you be able to obtain a precise diagnosis.  Your podiatrist can determine the cause of your foot rash and provide you with appropriate treatment.
