Red Feet

Hi. Can you please help me? I'm really worried about my feet.

Last Wednesday I took off my shoes and socks after work. I notice that the top surface of both feet had tiny pink dots and was very dense. I figured it was just athlete's foot. I put Lotrimin on that evening. Later that night I soaked my feet. Once I took my feet out from soaking, they were burning very bad for a couple of minutes.

I went to the doctor the next day. She noticed that the feet were pink, but got really red when I stand on them, especially for a long period. She perscribed he an anti-biotic and ibuprofen. She figured it was just athlete's foot, but didn't seem sure.

The next day I went to see a podiatrist. He figured it was just a reaction to foot fungus, but I wasn't convinced that he seemed completely sure either.

Any ideas? The only things that were different was I took stool softeners earlier that week, was on my feet on Monday and Tuesday for long hours, and I recently switched fabric softener.

Please let me know. It is day 4 and they are still the same (red, especially when standing up, and all toes remain pink. THe big toes seem somewhat swollen or firm).
