skin infection....need some advice

hi guys

This is a little long winded, so please bear w/me. I have eczema, I usually get it my fingers, but now I have it on my foot. I went to my GP he gave me some anti-fungal cream, did not help, finally went to the Derm. He prescribed a corticosteroid to reduce itching, redness, swelling, I must have a really bad case, because nothing is helping.

This gets kinda gross, so sorry, I just really need some help. Now I have a huge split on my heel, and a couple of spots that are seeping. My foot is getting so sore I can hardly walk. To relieve some of the pressure on one of the spots, I did sqeeze it and clear stuff came out of it, it's also very sore.

Should I maybe soak it in some E. Salts to draw out some of the infection?? If anyone could help I would be so very grateful!!

Blessings to you all

I think with eczema you need to moisturize,epsom salts might be too drying. Aveeno make oatmeal soak packets that you can drop in the tub or a basin, Afterwards, you can apply Aveeno moisturizing cream , I think it has colloidal oatmeal in it too. It will soothe your skin and help it to heal.
