Where on the foot is the lump? Any idea how it happened? when you went to sleep it was fine?
Can you snap a picture of the lump?
Are you able to snap a picture?
I see. is it possible there is something inside ? does it feel like a splinter?
there isnt' much that I can think of that would be "worrisome" and happen on such short notice. what makes more sense would be something which cut you or got under the skin.
can you try putting gauze underneath a thick bandage , on top of the wound?
I see. That makes more sense. Can you soak the foot in warm water overnight? Take some ibuprofen (600mg every 6 hours over night). If it's not better tomorrow, you should go to the hospital then.
Was I able to address your question to your satisfaction? Can I clarify, or address any other related questions for you today?
