    Everytime I wear shoes for a day or two I always seem to get a rash that starts on the side of the foot then becomes red and swollen and itchy at times and is very painful to walk on especially after sleeping when getting up, and the Dr. can't seem to know what it is because by the time I get to the Dr it goes away some what but only if I don't wear shoes, it doesn't happen with flip flip or some open toe sandles, this is very frustrating because it's been going on for years, I have to wear shoes at work and stand on my feet for long periods of time. I've put athletes foot cream on it but it doesn't work, does anyone have any idea as to why this is happening, or has this happen to you and what do you do for it.

    It is most likely an allergic contact dermatitis
    Get to a dermatologist or testing what the allergy is.

    Itchy rash, redness, swelling and pain in feet definitely are symptoms of athlete's foot. To make sure, you should see a dermatologist for a skin test. Athlete's foot is very easy to treat with topical cream and home remedies. You can use diluted tea tree oil to relieve athlete's foot between the toes. But, you should take care when applying tea tree oil because it can cause rash and irritation in the skin. You can also apply topical cream such as Fugacil to treat the fungus. Good luck!
