Hello and welcome to HCM,

I read your query and understood your concern. It doesnt sound like something to worry a lot about. Its probably just a pressure injury with inflammation. Put some topical antibiotics like fusidic acid / mupirocin and a band-aid to prevent from further injury due to shoe.

Apply ice and take oral paracetamol or ibuprofen to reduce the inflammation.

Hope I helped.
