Yes: Small hemorrhages under the thick skin on one's foot can present this way and "flake off" with time.

Black dot can also be a melanoma so I would see a doctor if it does not flake away completely. ...Read more

I cut skin while cutting nail of toe. Now I see skin there has black spot and some shooting pain once a while. Can it be infected. Wud I need antib!

I cut skin while cutting nail of toe. Now I see skin there has black spot and some shooting pain once a while. Can it be infected. Wud I need antib!

Doubtful infection: The black spot you see sounds like dry blood and I presume the shooting pain is due to your having cut the skin. I also presume this problem is only a few days old. Signs of infection would be local redness, swelling, and near constant pain. If any of this is present you should see a doctor, otherwise I would use a daily dab of Neosporin (any any triple antibiotic) and a band-aid until healed. ...Read more

From a halo to white. ...Read more

My wife found a strange looking insect bite on her foot. Not sure if it’s dangerous to her. 3 straight scratch marks and small black dot. Not itchy.?

Dangerous?: Doesn't sound like it is especially if it is just marks and no symptoms, pain, fever, redness swelling or itching? Sure it was an insect bite? Hard to say without a picture or more history but it is unlikely to be of any consequence if it does not bother her. Would see a practitioner if it is still of concern. ...Read more

Of course, without a detailed Hx with sequence of event and a direct look, it's hard to come up an accurate Dx as wished. So, see Doc timely if still in doubt. Best wish. .. ...Read more
