Difficult to tell by: your description, and need more info. In any case, have it checked out by you PCP in Dubai, and get it evaluated, and take care of your styes too. To have all of it occurring at once is painful. So, get some relief, especially if warm compresses are not decompressing your styes fast enough. ...Read more

If you live in an area of the country where lyme disease is endemic, you may want to pursue formal evaluation (blood test) to determine your lyme titer. Lyme can be accompanied by the other symptoms described. Rocky mountain spotted fever, recluse spider bite, abscess and even closed head injury would be other possibilities. ...Read more

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! ...Read more
