Hi small hole on the foot after popping out can be trophic can be due to peripheral neuropathy due to diabetes.or due to hansens disease.first rule out hansens disease by seeing sensations over the area then rule out diabetes
After that use a broad spectrum antibiotic twice daily .neurokind plus tablet daily once and application of megaheal ointment can cure the acute infection.after that apply dipsalic ointment and moisteriser
