Raised skin on index toe, purple discolouration, pain on pressing. Causes?

I noticed some raised skin on my index toe on my left foot . The only time my bare foot touches the ground is when I use the bath tub at my residence otherwise my feet always have shoes, socks, or slippers on. It was purplish and when I pressed on it, the inside became red. It has VERY little pain if I push it. What is it??

Thanks for the query

You might have developed a callosity.

It develops due to constant friction.

Another possibility is pyogenic granuloma.

A photograph would have helped me in giving a closer diagnosis.

It can be cured by using keratolytics like salicylic acid.

surgical removal can also be done.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
