Black Spot on Foot

14 posts in this topic

About 2 months ago on the callus behind my big toe I found what appears to be a large blood blister. Show my PCP and he agreed seemed to be a blood blister and may have been from new shoes and new job. Well 2 months later it is still there , same size and color and still tender to the touch. Should I have maybe my endo look at this or take it to my PCP again or just assume it is taking forever to go away?

:confused:

Do have it looked at again, especially if you have any signs of neuropathy or leg/foot circulation problems. I can't tell you who the best doctor is, depends on their individual inclinations - if there is a real problem you'll need to ultimately see a foot doctor of sorts.

I have good circulation in my feet but do have some tingling in the left on the bottom. Dr is not sue if it is neropathy or left over from my back surgery at the end of Augest. I had a 3/4 inch piese of a herniated disk removed that had broke off and lodged in my sciatic nerve. :(

I would definitely have anything on my feet checked out. Even if it's nothing, you'll have peace of mind.

Don't wait any longer, get it seen to, as John said you are diabetic. Your healing powers will not be what they once were.

Broken record here: get it checked. I'd let my endo look at it, but that's just me. I say this because your endo is more likely to have seen this sort of thing before.

I guess I will "ditto". Please get it checked. Blood blisters can take awhile to reabsorb, but two months is far to long.

 

Please get it checked out.

Let me throw in my "me too" on getting it checked. As the saying goes, "better safe than sorry".

Made to Dr. today about the spot on my foot. No sign of infection and seems to be a stubborn blood blister but to be sure they have gave me a referal to a podiatrist.

LOL IrishJoe,

I did more than shiver, DR waited 6 weeks for the herniation to suside so he did not have to shave the disks too. 6 weeks of very bad pain and because as I have mentioned in other posts I am a drug addict so I use as little pain pills as possible. But I will say this, The surgeon is awesome. I have NO pain from the back at all.

:)
