Back Of Foot Blister
Heel spur on back of foot &below back of foot. Achilles tendinitis visible bump on the side opposite of the ankle. Been years. Pains unbearable. Help?
Sick Achilles.: Your comments sound like the findings of a previous x-ray exam. I'm not sure what is meant by "bump on the opposite side of the ankle". If it is in the Achilles tendon, then extreme pain, could make sense. It sounds as though there is something amiss with your Achilles tendon. It would make sense to immobilize the ankle, and begin non-weight bearing until tendon imaging studies can be performed ...Read more
Jogger's foot?: Entrapment of the medial plantar nerve in the longitudinal arch can cause burning heel pain, aching in the arch, and deficient sensation in the sole of the foot behind the great toe.

Pain in small spot bottom of foot, toward heel- in morning and walking. Feels like it's pulling from heel up back of my leg too. Plantar fasciitis?
Probably: Plantar fasciitis is typically in the bottom of the heel. Worse in morning and after rest. It can hurt up the leg too from walking differently to compensate. Try ice, Achilles stretches, NSAIDs, orthotics, good shoes. Avoid barefoot and flat shoes without support. See you local podiatrist. It could be this problem or something else. They can help you get better. ...Read more
Claw toes: If standing barefoot your toes are slightly contracted on the tips, almost like your walking to the tips of your toes that could cause blisters if they are not hitting your shoes. ...Read more
Wear and Tear.: Treating pain, especially in the foot, is always so much easier when the patient can actually put their finger tip on the exact spot of the pain.

Left foot- I have a painful lump on the inside of my heel & pain running along the outside of foot from mid foot to little toe. What is causing it?
Pain: Without a physical exam , that is extremely difficult to answer. Based on your description i would suspect infracalcaneal bursitis with peroneal tendonitis secondary to plantar fasciitis. That is speculation. Your best solution is to see your podiatrist for an exam , x rays and a diagnosis. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

The : The thing you need to know about blood blisters is once "popped, " they are very susceptible to infection. The bloody fluid is a perfect media for bacterial growth. With that in mind (assuming you're in a state of good health, not a diabetic or have poor circulation or are taking any blood thinners), go ahead and pop it. Get it from the side, where the skin meets the blister, and use a sterile instrument. Wash it with soap and warm water, and keep it clean and dry with a dry, sterile dressing (a band aid is ok). Don't use any topical antibiotic like bacitracin, neosporin, etc. Just keep it clean and dry until it's no longer "open" (draining). You might see a light red ring around it after a day or so, which is normal inflammation you need to heal. Watch for signs of infection: increased pain, increased drainage or pus, swelling, redness, foul odor. At the first sign of infection, head to your doctor for a prescription for an antibiotic. Try not to get arrested for practicing medicine without a license! ...Read more

SImple means: You need to identify why the blister developed and eliminate that problem. Then, the keys are to cover and protect the injured area with dressing changes every other day to allow healing. Remember that inflammation (red, hot, swollen and tender) are important parts of healing and do not necessarily mean infection. If the wound is healing, it cannot be infected. If it gets worse, see a doctor. ...Read more
Don't deroof it. : You don't want to deroof a blister. You can pop it, using a clean instrument, but if you're concerned (if the fluid is an unusual color, or if the surrounding skin is very red and swollen, or the blister is quite large, etc.), you may want to have your health care professional evacuate the blister for you. Keep it clean and dry as it heals. ...Read more

All blisters are not: All blisters are not alike. If the blister was caused by a shoe rubbing then the previous answer is good advise. But, some blisters are caused by fungal infections. If after breaking the blister itching occurred a fungal infection might be suspect. If the fluid coming out of the blister is colored and not clear it could be a minor bacterial infection. If the problem persists seek medical advise. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
When I scratch my foot, blister-like-bumps are filled w/ blood when popped, is their any remedies to stop/soothe it without going to a derm.?
Yes...but: While "blood blisters" are common from trauma, & generally do not need specific treatment other than time, the way the question is asked concerns me.If every time you scratch or have minor trauma to your foot you get blood-filled bumps, you should be seen. I would be worried about a bleeding disorder.General wound care:soap/water/air/aloe can all help injured skin heal.Slow healing think diabetes. ...Read more

Infection possible: You may need to seek immediate attention. If there’s swelling, pus, streaking red lines, you are likely to have soft tissue infection or cellulitis. Elevate your leg, keep wounds clean, and watch for those signs and for weeping, or fevers. Depending on the amount of surface area of the burns and the depth, this could be very serious. If fever or streaking red lines up your leg, go to emergency ! ...Read more

Protect the areas: A foot blister from running (or playing tennis, or ice-skating) is just a spot on the skin where friction separated the top layer of skin from a layer underneath. After washing, one should cover the blister with a bandaid, whether or not the blister is intact or popped. After a week, the skin layer underneath matures into a new surface layer, and the dried top layer (the blister) will peel away. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
