Can someone please, please offer advice?
I get deep cracks and scaling on my hands and feet. Podiatrist said it's fungal. Pharmacist said it's contact dermatitis. GP said it's possibly an allergy. Treatments for all these suggestions have failed, ie. athlete's foot poweder, every ointment you can name, oral and topical steroid treatments. When I saw a Dermatologist he suggested stronger steroid creams and then Phototherapy NOTHING HAS WORKED. My feet are often so cracked I can't stand upright.
I'v ehad this problem in a midler form for years ie, cracks would appear, endure for a week, then heal, but now it is here constantly and nothing will heal them. I got a dog a few months ago, but have never been allergic to dogs and show no typical pet allergy symptoms.
I have also began working from home so am rarely outside. Could it be somehting as simple as lack of sunlight?
Please help, I'm desperate.
