The top of my foot is swollen, painful and inflamed. Difficult to walk barefoot. Swollen every evening. 3 weeks. Along middle toe bone.

Stop stressing it.: Swollen painful and inflamed are certainly signs that something is amiss. Swollen in the evening and along the third toe sounds like a possible stress fracture of the 3rd metatarsal. The possibility of an infection must be considered, however my money is on the fracture. Rest, elevation and ice will help but you need to have it thoroughly evaluated and a treatment plan started. ...Read more

I hurt myself and now the inner side on the top of my left foot is swollen, bruised, and it has a bump. It's hard to walk. What should I do? Thanks

Rice It.: Begin with the RICE protocol. Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation. Do not put weight on it until tomorrow. The swelling should be reduced as well as the pain. If you still can't walk on it tomorrow, you will have to use crutches and see your doctor. X-rays may be needed. I doubt that it's fractured, but, one never knows. ...Read more
