I got this bump on my foot right to the side of my big toe.

Customer Question

I got this bump on my foot right to the side of my big toe. i will attach a picture. it hurts when I touch it. kind of like a pimple when I press down on it. it is red all around and I've had it for more than 2 months. I just squeezed it and someclear liquid with I think a little bit of white stuff came out. I thought at first it was muliscolim cantageousim because I had those in my stomach area and around the same time I got a similar bump on my foot what can it be?

Do you get any itching on the area?
Do you still have the molluscum contagiosum lesions on other areas of the body?

Did you have any history of trauma in that area?
Was it a raised skin colored bump before it became red?

no new shoes.


and yes they are close fitted

Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 2 years ago.
Thanks for the reply .
There are two possiblities .
One is that it can be an infected molluscum lesions as you did give a history of some white lesion coming out of it .
The other possibility could be a friction blister due to constant or heavy walking in a hot weather and close fitted shoes .

You will need to apply :1% Cortizone cream + Bacitracin ointment: Mix and apply over the affected area twice a day for 5-7 days


NOTE: All of the above are available without a prescription.

Thanks for your query posted .
No there is nothing serious .
You can treat it with the topical applications as I have stated . If it does not improve over a period of 2 weeks of applications I would suggest you to show it to the Dermatologist .
