I have a rash on my feet that itches and burns. I also have 'knots' that come up on my heel and toes. They have a purplish hue after they've been ther awhile and feel like they're growing off the bone. Heat make both worse. The doctor gave me a steroid cream that isn't working. He said it was a type of eczema that could be contagious, but my wife hasn't caught it yet. We sleep in the same bed, use the same shower and she wears my socks sometimes to keep her feet warm. They itch, but if I scratch, it makes them burn. It went away for awhile, but it's back now. Any ideas? It's not athlete's foot.

There's like a milion issues with the feet so you may have to keep trying different things.
