I have this weird thing on my foot I'm just wondering how to tell if it's corn?

See a podiatrist: Whatever "weird thing" is on your foot needs to be evaluated by a foot specialist. A biopsy may be needed if this is a skin growth. An x-ray may be needed if this is a bone problem. A physical examination of the problem is also needed. Other tests may also be indicated. Your podiatrist can do the proper evaluation of your problem. ...Read more

I had this thing on my foot above the heel for several weeks. Found out it was a Plantar Wart. How do I get rid of it??

Local destruction.: Turns out are hard to get rid of. Your doctor can freeze, burn, inject or even use a laser. Ultimately it takes a good immune reaction to the freezing or other treatment used by the doctor. We damage the tissue by freezing and your imune system then attacks the wart. See your doctor. The over the counter treatments don't work well for plantar warts. The skin on the foot is very thick. ...Read more

I have a rash looking thing on my foot on the top of the foot its very itchy and sore its red brown color my foot feels very swollen. But its not?

Acute athlete's foot: The first thing that comes to mind is that this is one of the presentations of acute athlete's foot. Use drying soaks (epsom salts or dilute vinegar) and a topical antifungal... I prefer patients use lotrimin ultra or Lamisil (terbinafine) cream. You can use certain-dry pads or solutions to decrease perspiration. If this doesn't work, see a podiatrist and be sure to inform them of what you have tried already. ...Read more

Regardless it needs to be seen to make the correct diagnosis. ...Read more

Wat is a hole like thing on the bottom of my foot it hurts and turns white when I take a shower?

Plantar wart?: No diagnosis can be made without seeing you and examining the lesion. However, painful lesions on the bottom of the foot that turn white from water being absorbed are probably plantar warts. Depending on other issues, history of diabetes, etc. It could be serious lesions, an abscess, an inverted corn, even skin cancer, believe it or not.

I just got brand new cutco knives and first thing I cut with them was my foot by dropping it on it, do I need a tetanus shot?

I just got brand new cutco knives and first thing I cut with them was my foot by dropping it on it, do I need a tetanus shot?

Watch out: First you should clean your wound with soap and water, washing it out well. Then think. When was your last tetanus shot? If you cannot remember, get one. If you do remember and it was within the past 10 years, in this situation you really should be ok. If it were a really dirty injury and your shot was more than 5 years ago I would recommend getting a booster. Good luck! ...Read more
