Spot on toe: JOANNE W ~ do you have ticks in your area? Do you have any cases of Lyme disease there? This lesion needs to be seen to accurately diagnosed, but if you have known Lyme in the area, this could be a target lesion. Go and see a doc to be sure.

I got a bite on my toe don't know what it its but its swollen and its open with red dot what kind of spider could it be?

Watch the Wound.: I'm not sure if you are describing the wound as having a red dot or the spider as having a red dot. The initial treatment is to clean the wound with soap and water, apply a topical antibiotic and light dressing. An ice or cold pack helps with the swelling and pain. You need to watch to make sure that the wound does not start spreading, causing tissue damage, in which case you need to see a doctor. ...Read more

It is important to recognize that one of the signs ER doctors look for in determining whether a fracture has occurred is the presence of early bruising. Seek urgent care and X-ray eval but even if fractured buddy taping, ice and elevation are enough! ...Read more

I have a big red dot on my left toe, it itches, and hurts all the time. What is this? It has been on my left big toe for 2 years, now it is showing up on my right big toe! My mom and dad look at it but don't know what and they keep telling me we will go

I: I can't diagnose you over the internet, but if you've had it for 2 years, and it's now appearing in the same spot on the other big toe, it could be irritation from rubbing because of the shape of your toe or even that your shoe size needs to be increased. While there is no real rush, mom and dad should take you to a podiatrist.

Print this out and leave it on the kitchen counter:

dear mom and dad of anonymous kid from lansing, mi:

your child seems to be concerned enough to write here at avvo about a problem he or she is having in their big toes. My best advice is to take him or her to a podiatrist and find out whether this is anything serious. Besides, he/she is in pain.

Sincerely,
dr. Fox in ny

hope that helps kiddo. Good luck! ...Read more

If not helpful than get a more potent preparation from your pcp it doesn't appear to be pyogenic whitlow as there appears to be less question of pain. Avoid changing shoes often.
