I have a cut on the bottom of my foot, I put a bandaid on it. Later that day I took off the bandaid. I see that there is a big red itchy spot.

Adhesive reaction: If the shape of the red, itchy spot is close to the shape of the bandaide, then this is most likely an allergic reaction to the adhesive. If you applied an ointment to the cut, it could also be a reaction to that as well. Unless your cut was dirty and not cleansed well, it is less likely to be infection developing that quickly. Blister bandages use a different adhesive and could work well. ...Read more

I have a painful corn on my foot I treated and tried to cut many times Now it's red painful spot that creates problem for me to ware shoes and walk?

A sensible approach: Make sure that the shoe you are wearing is the correct size.
Cutting down the skin helps at times when done by a Podiatrist. Diabetics see a DPM
Keep the area free of irritation when possible.
Silicone gel pads that can be purchased which fit over the toe offer great comfort
Avoid over the counter medicated pads. They contain a weak acid and can damage the skin
If no relief see a PODIATRIST. ...Read more

Someone stepped on my foot last night the inside of my R foot has pressure/pain when I walk on it. Swollen& red spot where it hurts could it b broken?

Watch that step.: Right now, the best thing to do is get your foot RICED. Rest it. Ice it. Compress it lightly. Elevate it. Get to a Dr. And get it evaluated if it does not improve by tomorrow. Probably just soft tissue damage, but without an x-ray it is difficult to tell. ...Read more
