I have a foot question...
I have a foot question. I am at least 100 lbs overweight. I have bunions (worse on my left foot), plantar facitis (both feet), a heel spur in my left heel, semi-high arches and the bottoms of my feet are hyper sensitive to anything. My podiatrist had me wearing rigid insoles for support but they made my feet hurt too much. I just picked up (have not worn yet) new insoles he re-did for me. I'm afraid to wear them though due to my toe pain. I can't see him until the middle of July so I'm asking you. I have hard bumps like calluses on my big toes but they hurt like blisters do. Also, I had my big toe nail removed due to ingrown toenail issues and now it's starting to grow back but it's hurting with the slightest touch and it doesn't look right. My main question is about doing something to reduce the pain until I can get an official diagnosis from my podiatrist.

Hello,
Thank you for your question,
I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.
You can take antiinflammatory analgesics like motrin or naproxen, if there is no other contraindication.
Warm application can be soothing.
You can soak it in warm water.
If the ingrown nail does not look right, I would suggest to take an examination in urgent care.
An infection needs to be ruled out.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Regards.

Can blisters be hard? Can calluses hurt like blisters? I'm already taking ibuprofen and it's taking the edge off but that's it
Blisters are not hard but calluses can hurt like blisters.
Those can be quite painful particularly when touched or a pressure is applied on it.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
