I have blister like sores on the tops of 3 toes (2 on one foot, 1 on another). They appeared about a week and a half ago, I thought they were blisters. They looked like it but didn t feel squishy like a blister and there were one or two hard small lumps. They were sore so I stopped wearing closed in shoes and was icing them. They became red and have not changed size after a week but they also have not gone away and are still sore, albeit not so much. If my feet get hot they hurt more. There is no open wound. I ve also had hard bumps appear on the tops of these same toes but they have no coloration. I thought perhaps the inititial sores were insect bites but I don t see why I would be getting more bumps? Also if I need to get this looked at do I go to a GP or a dermatologist?

Hi, I recently had full nail removal surgery on both big toes. On on of the toes I have now got a cluster of blisters (upper toe, on the bit between the foot and the nailbed), which have been itching for days and leak clear fluid. Some of the ones that popped have become small wounds but the blisters keep spreading and I worry they might get into the nailbed, which is still healing from the removal surgery. What is this?

I developed blisters after much walking in heels. That was middle April. They healed fine but now I am left with redness or darkened skin where the blisters once were - on top of 3 toes. With sandal season upon us, how can I reduce this discoloration?

Hi Dr S.N. Grief, Around 2001 I experienced a much less common colitis (apparently and according to the treating Specialist at North Shore Private Hosp., Northern Sydney. (I, unfortunately don t recall the specific name of it). (It seemed that i had picked up a stomach bug during a few days in Hospital when I d had foot surgery). Since early February this year, I have been intermittently experiencing similar symptoms to those i had early on, leading up to the colitis diagnosis. Diarrhoea, a bloated type of stomach discomfort and some lethargy. (I m now 71). I haven t yet presented to a Physician (and will v soon) but i m wondering if this is the same, or similar thing come back? Your comments will be much appreciated. Thank you, Roslyn

I had foot surgery approximately 7 weeks ago to have a bone spur and cyst removed from the top of my foot. It was really healing well and two weeks ago which was 5 weeks post surgery it became infected. I am on my second round of antibiotics. It is better but I still have fluid and swelling around the incision. I had it lanced and drained once already. Is the time frame to heal normal? At what point should I get another opinion?

well,I was diagnosed with Ross River fever and Barma Forest six plus years ago,battle with that up until I had some minor foot and knee surgery.After the latter,I contracted golden staf,to stop the staf they hit me with a very heavy dose of antibiotics,which intern knocked my kidneys out.This left me in intensive care fighting the staf and basically no kidneys,while facing the prospect of having my leg amputated to save my life.Thankfully I survived and kept my leg.The kidneys came back to the point where I was taken off dialysis and after 3 months finally allowed home.I was told by the doctor,that I would not be back on my feet till the end of 2013.May 2014,I still cannot do what I was doing prior to operation sept 12 2012.To give you some idea of my daily activities prior to my surgery,I would do 14hrs a day average,a lot of heavy lifting,as little as 20kgs-60kgs,sometimes more.I do a lot of heavy manual (used to) labour,I still try to,but most of the time I end up very tired and my body aches all over and at times I have to stop and have a day/weekend to recover.
