Rule out fracture: You need to have a 3 view x-ray of your foot and possibly see a podiatrist to advice you on orthotic devices.
I recommend to stay off heels for now and wear comfortable shoes. ...Read more

I got a Popsicle stick splinter stuck in my foot 2 weeks ago. I thought it had come out, but now my foot hurts even more. Is it still in my body?

I got a Popsicle stick splinter stuck in my foot 2 weeks ago. I thought it had come out, but now my foot hurts even more. Is it still in my body?

Fragment possible?: It is very likely that there is still a fragment of the stick still in your foot. Also, even if all is out, there is a chance there is infection and you would need to be on an antibiotic. I would get it looked at. Sometimes it is possible to get the piece out without a shot, but if it is too painful a local anesthetic can be used. Soak it in warm water and apply antibiotic ointment. ...Read more

About 5 days ago I was practicing turning for my dance class on one foot for about 30 minutes. Now the arch of my foot hurts kinda bad. What did I do?

Spain or strain: It sounds like a strain or sprain. As mentioned previously, rice therapy is a good first line of treatment. Orthotics will help as well. However, barefoot or dancing shoes usually do not lend themselves to orthotic use. Consider learning taping techniques to support and protect your arch while dancing. Also remember to warm up and stretch well prior to any practice or workout. ...Read more

I stepped on a bee could see the stinger a little while ago and now I can't my foot hurts so bad and can't walk on it but can't even use tweezers?

Make a BAKING SODA "poultice" (Spread it on the wet foot where the stinger is and let it DRY then pull off)

Hope this helps!

I landed on my foot wrong and I thought nothing of it. Now the bottom of my foot hurts and the top is bruised and swollen.

I landed on my foot wrong and I thought nothing of it. Now the bottom of my foot hurts and the top is bruised and swollen.

Rice now.: Sounds like you would benefit from the RICE protocol. Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. Painful on the bottom and bruised on the top could mean a fracture is possible. See how it feels tomorrow. If the foot still is painful when bearing weight, then you will need an x-ray to verify possible bone trauma. I'm sure a Healthtap specialist can guide you through your care. ...Read more
