Have a hard bump on heel that makes it hurt to walk?

Have a hard bump on heel that makes it hurt to walk?

Back or Bottom.: Bumps on the heel have a way of doing that. You didn't say where on the heel so it could be just about anything. My guess is though, either Haglunds deformity on the back side of the heel or a porokeratotic callous on the bottom of the heel. No matter, your best bet is to have your bump evaluated by a foot specialist to make the determination. ...Read more

Bump on heel - how to tell if this is haglund's deformity?

Bump on heel - how to tell if this is haglund's deformity?

If back of the heel:: Can be caused by haglund's if the heel bone itself is hypertrophied in the area, or this could be a calcification/ spur on the back of the calcaneus related to the achilles tendinitis, it may even be a calcification inside the tendon, separate from the bone... Suggest see your foot doctor for this. ...Read more

My five year old daughter has bump on heel of both feet and they itch?

My five year old daughter has bump on heel of both feet  and they itch?

Can you describe: The bump more? Something can itch when irritated or rubbed, so its important to figure out why there is a protrusion. Is it a soft tissue mass like a ganglion or is it actual protrusion of bone? Since, we can't see anything or feel it to examine it - I woud recommend you taking your kid in person to see someone. ...Read more

More than a sprain: Who diagnosed the high ankle sprain? A bump on the heel not usually associated with high ankle sprain. Pain and deformity in the back of the ankle suggests an achilles injury or even heel bone fracture. A true high ankle sprain should always be evaluated by an orthopedic surgeon because sometimes they need surgery if the ligaments between the tibia and fibula are completely torn. ...Read more

Ophthalmology visit: Is it a stye on the outside of the eyelid or a chalazion on the inside of the eyelid? You can use warm wet compresses using a clean towel or wash clothe. Also, if it is on the outside of your eyelid, you can use an antibiotic ointment made safe for eyes like Erythromycin Ophthalmic ointment. Chalazions are more difficult to treat and they "point" like a whitehead pimple on the inside of the eyelid ...Read more

Fractured : It is possible that you fractured the outside of your ankle and that could be the cause for the pain or you could have torn the ligaments supporting the outside of the ankle. You should be evaluated as soon as possible by and orthopedic surgeon. Most often this does not require surgery. ...Read more

Get another opinion: When you get another opinion, an x-ray should have been already taken to evaluate the structure of the foot/heel/ankle. I assume that you already had this based on the diagnosis of the heel spur; however, the continued pain may be soft tissue related, an mri/ct would be more diagnostic. If you have a tear in the tendon and/or ligament, injections would not be effective. ...Read more

A form of dermatitis: There are a few different conditions that may cause such a presentation. This could be due to an organism. But there are a variety of causes which could be due to eczema or a less common condition called pompholyx. It can be challenging to diagnose in a clinical presentation, so i'm thinking the blisters should be cultured and biopsied. Some rx's usually include a topical steroid. ...Read more
