did you try lotrimin on it?

It sounds like "swamp foot"
stop popping it! you're spreading the rash.
Soak it in epsom salt/warm water for 15 minutes twice a day dry well and let air for a while.
apply lotrimin or tinactin per directions on the packaging.
CLEAN white cotton socks ONLY till it goes away.

Id skip a doctor and go see a dermatologist....doctors have misdiagnosed rashes too many times....id try a cortozone cream, will stop the itching and help dry that mess up.

620-3376, dermatologist in Clarkston was on M-15 before 75, but may have moved office

cant come up w/ her name to save my life, but she's very good

Find RED food coloring and buy four bottles of them (like the kind you can buy from krogers). Dump them all over your foot, and let your foot soak in it for about 10 minutes. Do it over a pan, and keep re-dumping it over the foot. Whatever is in red dye will get rid of that, and it washes off your skin pretty easily.

sounds like gangrene, best to cut your foot off and cut your loses. You can use a torch or something to cauterize. Better to be safe than sorry IMO

A friend of mine did this, said it took care of the problem. I wonder why red dye works.

Maybe there is a write up on howstuffworks.com or something, I dunno, but it does.

x2 i had the same problem a couple years back and a friend of mine told me this trick. i thought he was fucking with me at first but i tried it anyways since i didnt have health insurance. i cant believe it actually worked! it is some chemical in the red food coloring. it has to be red though or it wont work!

Red dye does the trick. Dr. Kate told me this as well. Something about the slight acidity of the dye.

This worked when I had athletes foot when I was growing up, sounds like it's a similar rash. I was a little bit skeptical as well, cleared the shit right up in about 2 days. No joke, it was like 3 bucks or something for enough of it.

X2. From google:

"Some household items such as FD&C Red No. 40 (also known in the U.S. as red food coloring), often used for intertrigo, work well but in small selected areas. This red dye, used in this treatment like many other vital stains, is both fungicidal and bacteriocidal. For many years gentian violet was also used for bacterial and fungal infections between fingers or toes."

Other suggestions included on your feet in the shower.

I also heard that into the washer helps remove stains.

I think I would rather have clean smelling stained clothes then smelling like piss

I had some bumps once, and used the red food coloring method, they never came back. I also recommended this idea to clarkstoncracker when he asked me how I got rid of mine.

I've heard of this before, but never had to try it myself since I have health insurance. If you are broke that is where I would start. My coworker said she used it on her kids rash on his back...filled the entire bathtub with red dye water. She just couldn't remember if they did it hot or cold......does anyone know?
