I have had a rash for about a week now. It is on the middle inside arches of my both my feet symmetrically. Lots of little fluid filled vesicles popping up that break fairly easily.
I have posted some links to pictures of it below.

Does anyone have any ideas what this is?

  • It's most likely either dyshidrotic eczema or pustular psoriasis. It's hard to tell just by a picture, but its worth going to a dermatologist for. A milder, itchy form might be vesicular athletes foot, but the above picture showed some significant scaling/lichenification/crust that is inconsistent with a fungal infection. If you don't want to see a doctor, try the strongest over the counter hydrocortisone cream you can find, apply topically for 5-7 days. If it gets better (it won't dissapear yet, just get milder) then I'm right. If it gets worse and itches a LOT, then try athletes foot treatment, *especially if there is evidence of typical athletes foot (red, itchy, between the toes).
