I have a bone infection in my foot, and nasty yellow pus coming from top of foot. What can cause this?

If the popping does cause pain, then definitely see a specialist. ...Read more

Bone sticking out of foot a bit. Could it be fractured?

Bone sticking out of foot a bit. Could it be fractured?

It could be a compensatory change of the bone in the area due to soft tissue contractures or a biomechanical abnormality, or it may be due to an underlying bone tumor. Get seen by a professional to determine the cause. ...Read more
