Depends: Well, it really depends on what it is! if it's a wart, then there are ways to get rid of them - if its an infection, then you might be need treatment for that (if it's painful or getting bigger, i would get it checked out).

In theory : It would not be a DVT as the D stands for deep. There is the dorsal venous arch that could get a clot but it would be superficial. Clots in the foot are usually very painful to the exact spot of the clot. If you still have something there why not go get it checked out.... ...Read more

Ingrown toenail: when toenails are trimmed too short they can impale the flesh as they grow forward causing pain, redness, drainage. Trimming the offending border out can often cause it to become worse if you don't get the entire margin out. It can also cause it to have temporary relief only to return , again, when the nail grows.
