Left big toe tendon has lumps bumps and swelling along it and big toe is painful . Throbbing pain in big toe too?

I would: See a foot doctor. The question is are the lumps or bumps really on the tendon or in the subcutaneous tissues.....either way you should be examined, much easier to make a diagnosis like that in person... Possible ganglionic cyst is an example without seeing you but if I saw your foot inperson I would know right away if that's what you had. ...Read more

Blood blister on 3rd toe of right foot should pop or what

Blood blister on 3rd toe of right foot should pop or what

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
