Defeat Dermatitis With Baby Powder


Contact dermatitis on the dorsumof the foot is often treated as aleather or rubber allergy that isexacerbated by the patient’s shoes.

Contact dermatitis on the dorsum of the foot is often treated as a leather or rubber allergy that is exacerbated by the patient’s shoes. Although an allergy to leather or rubber is involved, sweat is often the inciting factor. Moisture build-up causes the chemicals in the shoe to leak into the sock and onto the foot, where the reaction occurs. Rather than have the patient throw out a good pair of shoes, suggest that he or she reduce perspiration by applying baby powder to the foot.
