I have been to four doctors (general practitioner/internist, podiatrist, allergist, and a dermatologist. None of them can tell me why my feet are peeling and itchy. It started this summer (June) and has grown progressively worse as of 1/2000. I just keep getting these fungus cremes from them. None can tell me the CAUSE. The allergist, today, finally gave a reason. Not sure it's a knowledge-based one. ...saying since I've started having major problems with my food allergy, a sensitivity to FD&C yellow dye #5, it could be related to my foot problem. AT one point, my elbows were itchy and peeling mildly too. But that disappeared 2 months later, with little use of the prescribed cremes. Please someone give me some suggestions on how to get to the bottom of this problem! I'm interested in probable causes, possible testing suggestions, similar cases, etc. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.
