About 1 month ago, I finally finished the 10day supply of keflex. Havent been back to an official gp, but here is what it still looks like. does this look like it is just an inconvenient infection similar to athletes foot?




And I was wondering will things like a hot rinse in bathtub for like 10 to 15 minutes under hot water will make it go away? currently im semi doing this and applying aquaphor at night.

Hi waznboi03,

What did your GP feel that this was in your first appointment? Here is a photo of athlete's foot that you can use to compare your symptoms. It is possible that you have the mocassin type athlete's foot infection that affects the bottom or heel of your foot. Have you tried an athelte's foot cream? You can buy the medicine over-the-counter at a store in your area. There are other skin conditions, like eczema , or other infections that could be causing these symptoms. If possible, it would be a good idea to make an appointment with your GP to see if he/she may have additional treatment options for your symptoms. Please let us know how you are doing and what you find!

Best wishes,
Atti
