Re: fourth toe, right foot, with blister , dark skin and pain
There are several things that come to mind. First it is not unusual to find an 82 year old with bad circulation to the legs and feet. The color changes may be an indication of this. I am not sure what the doctor who operated on her did, but it was either a hammertoe or a tailor's bunion. The drainage afterward might indicate a bone infection at worst. I think if there is no podiatrist, then see if you can take her to an orthopedist.
