Protect it: An unpopped blister represents a closed sterile environment. Yes on occasion one can become infected then it is time to open it, however the risk of infection in a dressed open wound is still higher than that of an intact blister.

Have it evaluated: Some causes of corns or calluses include: friction, pressure, repetitive trauma, and a limitation of joint motion. Some may develop bleeding under the callus resulting in a darkened discoloration of the underlying skin. You may benefit with the use of a special topical moisturize and the use of a pumice stone or an emory board. Consult with your podiatrist and determine the best approach for you. ...Read more

When exposed to air the tip of the sebum core turns black. Hence, the nickname "blackheads". ...Read more

Small infection: Maybe you got poked by something? Maybe with a little splinter underneath the skin? If have multiple on palms as well as other areas of skin, call doc for eval asap as it could mean systemic illness such as gonorrhea etc..If just only one, get a clean needle, clean area with rubbing alcohol and lancet/open it to allow draining of the puss. Then keep clean, dry should do it. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

By the looks of it, I have proximal subungual onychomycosis on a toe of a foot that has neuropathy. What do I do about it? It really hurts.

Unfortunately, : A diagnosis of onychomycosis can't be made by "looks" as bacterial colonization, subungual keratinazation both have identical looks. The diagnosis can be made by mycology specimen either KOH prep or pathology with PAS stain etc....

But more serious lesions can also occur in this region where it would be useful to know what specific type of tissue was responsible. For anyone over about age 30, a tissue biopsy would be strongly encouraged, and recommended in this location for younger patients. ...Read more
