Puss: If u think it is a infected blister then you will need antibiotics. Depends how big the abscess is-- may need draining as antibiotics may not work on an abscess if not drained.

Pebble in your shoe: A wart. Or a callus or corn, your body's attempt to make padding against lots of friction/pressure. When it gets large enough, it's a self-made pebble in your shoe. Soften your skin during bath/shower or soaking your foot. Rub pumice stone or medium-grit sandpaper to remove old built-up skin. If you don't have nerve damage to your foot, use salicylic acid or duct tape. Repeat. Good luck!

Plantar warts: This sounds like plantar warts, but other things can cause a rash on the bottom of the feet, too. If they hurt, they're easily treated but you need a diagnosis - call your doctor. And when you're in public places (like the gym or a pool) wear flip flops to help prevent them from spreading (or coming back!).

6 wks ago I broke my rt. Ankle & have a boot. I found a bump on the bottom of my foot that is painful. Could these be related?

Fracture ankle: Need to recall if painful bump on foot has been there since the ankle fracture. It may be a secondary consequence of using the walker boot. Sometimes we change the area on our foot where we bear weight when we r healing an ankle fracture. Subsequently it results in production of a painful area which may feel very firm. It will usually resolve as the fracture heals and your gait improves.

I have one small white bump on the bottom of my foot- it is very painful to walk on. I have xc meet tomorrow- anyway to get the pain away before then?

Pain avoidance: Hi Emily, it is hard to say exactly what you are talking about. Sometimes a blister has a whitish color. You can try padding around the painful area to help take off the pressure for your big race, but should consider having it looked as well. Good luck!

Possible abcess: Sounds like you may have developed an abcess (a collection of pus/infection) in that area. If this is the case, you need tobee seen by a medical professional who can see if the pus needs to be drained out and possibly antibiotics. This should not get put off as these things can get very bad and the infection can spread, including into your body.

I suddenly have a crack/dent on the side of my heel the skin is not broken or dry it's very painful and next to it there's a small bump also painfull

Exam needed: Without examining the area a diagnosis can't be made. If there is spreading redness I would be concerned about cellulitis which would require antibiotic treatment. The lump could be a cyst. If warm wet applications don't improve the discomfort, have a physician evaluate you.

Have a small red bump on back of heel & has like white center. Very painful I've had it b4 it comes and goes. What could it be? It's as small as a pea

Foreign body or cyst: You have to rule out a foreign body which may have become embedded in the back of your heel, but there is more of a likelihood that it could be an inclusion cyst which can be painful. You should consider having it examined and biopsied which will basically take care of 2 things - it will remove the immediate problem and help determine what it is. See a podiatrist!
