My toe nail fungus has progressed to very swollen feet and ankles with (dead skin?) or some solid white stuff popping out everywhere. need help! jim

Tophaceous Gout: Tinea unguium (fungal nail infection) is very unlikely to be involved in the swelling. I would work you up for high uric acid levels and send some of the 'white stuff' in for dark field microscopy (putting the sample in absolute alcohol and not formalin). Assuming this is gout, you need to be placed on a xanthine oxidase inhibitor to deal with the uric acid levels which cause gout. ...Read more

My husband has very swollen feet with burning, peeling skin he has a history of eczema and they hurt to move. It doesn't itch. Is this a foot fungus?

My husband has very swollen feet with burning, peeling skin he has a history of eczema and they hurt to move. It doesn't itch. Is this a foot fungus?

Not necessarily: If his feet are very swollen this can cause cracks in the skin and cause the skin to blister or peel. This could be due to eczema or just from the swelling. They can be painful due to the skin being broken to move them. Best to have them checked out, he may need a steroid cream, compression, or it could be a fungal infection, but the only way to know would be to have them looked at. ...Read more

Reviewed your meds...see no reason to suspect them. Need good evaluation...start with primary care ...Read more

Dropped glass on my foot & a piece of it made a small puncture. Swollen vein & painful. Ice & elevated but goes back when I stand up. What do I do?

Dropped glass on my foot & a piece of it made a small puncture. Swollen vein & painful. Ice & elevated but goes back when I stand up. What do I do?

Inflammation: will certainly occur with an injury. Ice early, elevation then warmth later. The problem is that this presupposes that the injury Stopped occurring. If there is continuing injury, it's going to stay inflamed. Infection OR a retained shard of glass will keep the area inflamed until it is treated. Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health ...Read more
