Large bump on the inner side of little toe, oozed pus on popping, no improvement with peroxide cleaning. What could this be?

Hi. I have a large bump on the inner side of my little toe . It does appear to be pulling some skin away from the nail. I have had it for a couple Weeks now and recently started to get painful. I have cleaned it and used peroxide but nothing. I did pop it once when it first appeared and some puss did come out. I just want to go on like normal and get rid of this pain and embarrassment. what can I do? What could this be? Please help.

Hello Dear
As you have told in your query that pus is coming out. So this is probably infection of the part or abscess. You need a course of effective antibiotic and anti-inflammatory drugs. Analgesic drugs can be used to reduce pain. Consult your doctor as soon as possible and get examined your site so that he can give you a proper advise and treatment.
Keep the site clean and don't try to squeeze it. Can do aseptic dressing if it is oozing.
