Hello, For several months, I have had a red plaque on my foot. After several treatments for athlete's foot and eczema, the plaque is still present.

Good morning, ma'am,
It is quite difficult to evaluate the situation without a physical assessment. Have you ever consulted a professional for this problem? Would you be able to send us some well-lit images of the affected area?
Could you list all the treatments you have tried and the length of time they took?
Thank you for your time!

Thank you for the information.
If you experience itching, I suggest applying a fragrance-free moisturizer like Aveeno 3 to 4 times a day if possible. Encourage the use of a fragrance-free soap like Dove.
I also suggest wearing cotton socks as they allow for better breathing.
If this measure does not offer any improvement, it would be appropriate to consult a doctor so as not to delay the right treatment, if any.
I hope I've been helpful and I'm available if you have any further questions!
Tom Samaha, pharmacist
