Swollen patch, sore and warm to touch below the foot. Treatment ?
Hi there, today I walked around an average amount in birkinstocks sandles. When I got into the car to drive home from the movies, I noticed a swollen patch (about the size of a flattened penny) just below the ball of my foot . I have one on each foot. The patches are warm to touch, sore and swollen. I would like to know what I can do to treat this as I have never experianced these patches before.
I would suggest you to avoid such foot wear in future. for present treatment : Apply ice and Diclofenec ointment to painful part. Apply compression bandage and keep it elevated over pillow Take Brufen tablet for pain relief.
