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! ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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! ...Read more

I have a little bump on the bottom of my foot with soft tissue. It has been there for 10 years?

I have a little bump on the bottom of my foot with soft tissue. It has been there for 10 years?

Sounds benign: If the bump has been there for 10 years, has not grown, and is not causing pain it is almost certainly benign. I can't tell what it is from the description, but it could be a plantar fibroma, which is a benign tumor arising from the plantar fascia; it could also be some type of cyst. I do usually recommend having a doctor take a look at it to make sure it is nothing serious. ...Read more

Should i be concerned about a lump in the bottom of my foot I have a bump on the bottom of my foot that occassionally hurts when i touch it or walk on it

Likely Benign: The most common cause of a lump in the arch is a plantar fibroma, a benign tumor of the plantar fascia ligament. It can be treated with steroid injections and ultrasound therapy. If symptoms return, it can be removed but the recovery can be prolonged. Any lump should be evaluated by a medical professional. While most are benign, malignant tumors do occur in the feet as well. ...Read more

I have had what feels like a knot like bump on the bottom of my foot by my arch and sole of my foot and it hurts to walk on. Is it plantar fasciitis?

Probably not, as PF-: Usually does not present with a swelling. It probably is planter fibromatosis (benign condition), ganglion, fb (foreign body in form of a thorn, needle/nail, wooden splinter, with some infection around it) or rarely other types of cysts or lesions which are generally diagnosed with biopsy by the pathologist.
Surgery not only rids swelling + tissue is available for biopsy, to ensure correct dx.,. ...Read more

I have a blood bump under the skin on the bottom of my foot?

Spot on foot: 1st of all congratulations! Not too many ppl make it a habit to check the bottom of their feet. You can check to see if there is any fluid in that bump, otherwise it may just resolve on its own. If there is fluid in the bump or it does not resolve in ~14 days. Ask for a podiatry referral. It can be something as simple as a smudge/dirt, wart, blister, or skin lesions. ...Read more

I was wearing shoes and the inside is lumpy. Now the bottom of my foot is itchy and has a bump. What's wrong?

I was wearing shoes and the inside is lumpy. Now the bottom of my foot is itchy and has a bump. What's wrong?

Foot rash: If you had the bump prior to wearing that shoe, the rash is probably from something else. If you got the bump after coming in contact with this footwear, it could be contact dermatitis or ill-fitting shoes, causing irritation and the bump—it could also still be unrelated to the footwear. Try hydrocortisone cream and Benadryl (diphenhydramine). If it doesn’t improve, have it examined. ...Read more

I have tiny itchy bumps on the bottom of my foot. They are all around what used to be a blister and is now a hole in my foot with weird looking skin?

I'm not sure what : Exactly you mean by a whole in the foot...are we speaking of a bonafide ulcer? If so you should see a foot doctor or dermatologist....if its just one of the blisters erupting it sounds more along the lines of a bullous Tinea pedis or athletes foot and a topical antifungal would be a good starting point. ...Read more
