Re: fourth toe, right foot, with blister , dark skin and pain

Thnak you Doctor. A podiatrist examined her yesterday and found that due to her age , soft tissue normally found around under toes' skin is reduced thus increasing the collision between the bones and skin. A sore blister was produced on her fifth toe, then disappeared, and a new blister appeared on her fourth toe. Podiatrist cleaned the wound, removed thin bunion that grew around the blister with a scalpel, dabed some antibacterial cream, wrapped the toe in gauze and an elastic bandage and placed a gel interdigital separator. Then she could put on her shoes w/o pain and could walk. I bought some wide shoes and she feel fine now. She will clean the wound every day with the liquid used before operations, add the antibacterial cream and use the interdigital gel separator. Follow up in one week. Poor circulation had no relation to this problem, the root cause was that soft tissue being reduced the chance of collison between bones and skin was greater and produced the blisters and bunions. Thank you Doctor.
: Good Luck
