Blisters/hives that won’t go away

    So it started 2 weeks ago. I woke up in the night with burning feelings in my 3rd and 4th toe. The next morning I noticed I had a very sensitive blister-like form on the end of each toe, right around the bottom of the nail bed. I didn’t think much of it and assumed I had done it to myself from the long walk the day before.
    It stayed consistent like that for 3 days and then I awoke again in the night with my foot burning as if it were on fire. so that morning I went to the clinic to get a doctors take on the situation. I could see another blister starting but time on my big toe. The doctor suggested it may be dyshidrotic eczema so she prescribed me some betaderm ointment to sooth and hopefully help.
    Well, that prescription was unsuccessful and 2 days later it just started progressing, also onto the other foot in the same area. Almost looking like hives, white Centers with red rims, and slowly getting larger. I tracked everything I ate to elimate a reaction from some food, and stayed inside since it is spring time. I took antihistamines to no avail. One night I thought my feet were going to burn off and the feeling of deep nerve pain was making me cry! I went to the Emerg and was given nopraxin to help with the inflammation, and also a short supply of Prednisone to calm the reaction. They did blood work as well and nothing was out of the ordinary. It eventually simmered down and I was able to finally fall asleep.
    Since then, my nights are spent on the couch with a station to cool my feet in whenever they start to rage and burn on me. My skin is sore and tender all the time, and when it flares up and gets hot (for whatever reason) I can barely even touch my skin without excruciating pain. The ends of my toes have pin like bruises scattered all over which also are extremely painful. I cannot wear shoes, or put weight on my toes, and the rash (or whatever the heck is it) slowly keeps spreading. It’s at the point where no doctor has a clue as to what it is or what is causing this reaction.
    Has ANYONE experience something so strange and figured out what it was?? I’m at my wits end and need help!
    I will include pictures of the progression throughout the last 2 weeks.

    That sound like a dyshidrotic eczema
    Suggest you try a dermatologist to get it investigated further as it should have responded to treatment if it was dyshidrotic eczema
