Customer Question

Good morning. About three weeks ago I experienced intense pain of the upper foot near ball and just below joint of foot with toes. The presentation was a hard mass accompanied with intense pain and swelling. It was difficult to walk. At the time of this incident there appeared to be a substantially sized cut. The pain has since subsided and the not so usual cut is very gradually healing. There is still some pain to walk although things are improving daily with rest. We had visited the Dallas TX area when this began. If it was a spider bite, are there any spider parts which remain in the sore? Who should I see to review? thks, Paul

Hi Paul.
Thanks for this question
There would be no spider parts in the wound. That would not happen
However, you should have it looked at to be sure there is no residual infection
If you don't have a primary doctor, I would go to urgent care. They should be able to help
It sounds like it is healing as it is supposed to though
