My so got stitches on the crease of his big toe (awkward spot) and now has a white itchy bump, blister like but harder, that's on his toe. Infection?

It does not sound : Like an infection but since we cat see it bring your son back to the doc to take a look or somehow post a picture for further comment. Infections are usually red, Or if there is a pus this is another sign of infection. The sutures might just be a little tight and that is the "itchy bump"..... ...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

On May 25th I sliced the tip of my big toe open. It's healed completely, but still hurts horribly when I "stub" it & there's a numb lump under my toe?

On May 25th I sliced the tip of my big toe open. It's healed completely, but still hurts horribly when I "stub" it & there's a numb lump under my toe?

Yikes.: The tips of toes, and fingers for that matter, just don't like to be sliced. They are typically a painful heal and the injured pain receptors will take many months to calm down completely. The numb lump is either part of the initial injury or secondary due to an altered gait. Either way, it too, will more that likely pass. I speak from experience. ...Read more

Big toe nail fungus and blood blister underside of toe. Saw  a podiatrist, he clipped the excess toenail and the pain is now under the toe.

I assume the : Blister was drained? So, the question is is there raw skin that is hurting? Is it possible you developed an infection? Is there a bandage in or did you take it off. If you took it off what do you see? ...Read more

How to treat a cut on the corner of my big toe, beside me toe nail?

How to treat a cut on the corner of my big toe, beside me toe nail?

Read below: If this is a cut, not athletes foot fungus, i would put a very thin layer of neosporin ointmen and a bandaid to the area 2 times per day. After the cut heals, put vaseline on the area for a few days to make sure it does not break open. If this is red, swollen or infected, please see your podiatrist. ...Read more

Daughter fell and her finger bent back & cracked. Painful & burns. Bruised on underside of finger. Chance it might be broke. Have a finger brace on it?

Daughter fell and her finger bent back & cracked. Painful & burns. Bruised on underside of finger. Chance it might be broke. Have a finger brace on it?

Yes, for now: You should put some ice on the finger to minimize pain. Use Ibuprofen, liquid or tablet, based on age. Check with your doctor in AM for a plain Xray tomorrow to make sure it is not a complicated fracture requiring an Orthpedic referral. Hope it goes well! ...Read more

Itchy bump on side of big toe knuckle and on top of knuckle. Isn't painful, but very itchy and irritated when wear close-toed shoes.

Itchy bump on side of big toe knuckle and on top of knuckle. Isn't painful, but very itchy and irritated when wear close-toed shoes.

Try simple first.: I am not clear as to which knuckle you are describing. It is either the joint in the big toe itself or the joint where the big toe meets the main body of the foot. If the bump becomes worse while wearing a certain shoe style, then change the shoes. This may be the easiest solution. Possibly there is an underlying fungal infection. Try using a topical anti fungal. Have it examined by a doctor. ...Read more

Will a blister on my ankle scar?

Will a blister on my ankle scar?

Possible scar: If the most superficial layer of skin is involved in the blistering the chances of scaring are low, but the deeper the involvement in the skin the higher the chances of scaring. If the pressure or shearing forces creating the blister are repetitive in the same area, then callus will form thickening the skin and changing its normal appearance. ...Read more

I missed the cellphone power button and pressed my middle finger down hard on the  glass.. its  red on e tip. can one fracture a finger tip this way?

Hardly: Unless you broke the glass I don't think you pushed it that hard. May have sprained the finger. Immobilize it by lightly taping it to the next finger and it should feel better in a week or 10 days. ...Read more

Punched glass, the swelling has gone down some. I can feel a little bump on my 4th metacarpal on my ring finger. Finger & knuckle-wrist is real sore?

Punched glass, the swelling has gone down some. I can feel a little bump on my 4th metacarpal on my ring finger. Finger & knuckle-wrist is real sore?

Be seen: I would recommend being seen and having an X-ray. There is something called a "boxers fracture" that can be caused by striking something with a closed fist. The "bump" you are describing could be a displaced fracture which might require reduction for a good result. ...Read more
