My podiatrist popped a large blood blister on my foot 3.5 wk ago. The area is still numb from the procedure and the part she cut to drain is black!

Go back for follow: Up.

Can I get any type of hepatitis by getting a pedicure if I have a cut on my foot? Not sure if the utensils were clean

Can I get any type of hepatitis by getting a pedicure if I have a cut on my foot? Not sure if the utensils were clean

Little or no risk: Any risk here is theoretical only. The chance the instruments were contaminated with hepatitis viruses is extremely low, and transmission probably wouldn't happen even if they were. Infection by this mechanism is extremely rare if it occurs at all. In the future, confirm the shop disinfects their instruments between customers and avoid those that don't. But don't worry about this event. ...Read more

I dropped a weight on my foot and my toenail turned black. What will happen now?

Hematoma: The black discoloration is bleeding. Initially after such an injury this pool of blood or hematoma can be drained. If it is already dry it may dissolve over several months. If the injury is severe the nail may fall off and you will get a new nail in 4-6 months. In severe cases a doctor may have to remove the nail in order to repair a laceration underneath. X-rays may be needed to rule out fracture. ...Read more
