Customer Question
I had a blister...

I had a blister on my foot and at the end of the day today I now have red swollen tissue next to it on my ankle and starting up the back of my leg

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?

I felt the pain all day, but I thought it was just the blister finally popping. I had boots on. I took the boots off around 9pm and found the swelling and redness. Tender to the touch

Hello my name is***** am a board-certified physician with over 15 years of clinical experience and I am happy to help you. Can you tell me please, are you having any fever? And when you say tender to the touch, is that just on the redness surrounding the blister on the ankle or is the part starting up the back of your leg tender too?

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.
