I am 84 years old and have peripheral neuropathy. past

Customer Question

I am 84 years old and have peripheral neuropathy. For the past few months I've had a rash on the outer sides of both my feet. The left foot as a very sensitive red spot about the size of a nickel. Both feet are very sensitive, red, and painful-especially at night.I am taking Lyrica, but I'm not sure it's working. A chiropodist advised me to see the doctor as she had no idea. The doctor upped my Lyrica dose and prescribed an anti fungal lotion, which made it worse. I stopped using it and use Aveena twice a day. This helps a little, but the pain still keeps me from sleeping several nights a week. Can you help?
