Im not sure how to post a photo..

Without seeing a photo I’d guess at hand, foot and mouth! Or chicken pox.

Jessgonsalves Thu 14-Dec-17 21:36:19 The photo is on there? any ideas? Im worried not sure if I should get it seen tonight?

Hmm doesn’t look like hand, foot and mouth. Looks more like a verruca!

Has it just appeared?

I don't think it needs any action tonight. Check it in the morning and decide then if it needs a doctor to look at it?

I noticed she had like a hard bit of skin a couple of weeks ago, wasnt worried at all, then I saw it today and it looked like that..

Splinter or hair stuck in there? My toddler had a hair embed and got expelled in a spot like that.

Agree it doesn’t need urgent action tonight.

Im not sure what it is, but we do have a dog so could be a hair? It looks like it needs to be popped

Jessgonsalves Thu 14-Dec-17 21:44:31

its not bothering her at all and it still feels really hard

Snowman41 Thu 14-Dec-17 21:49:22

Her foot looks very red, i would be concerned about infection

Jessgonsalves Thu 14-Dec-17 21:51:58

Thats exactly what I'm worried about, I might just give 111 a call and see what they say

chocolateorangeowls Thu 14-Dec-17 21:54:32

Is it still that red when you aren't holding the foot? Sometimes it's just the position that makes foot look really red.

I'd probably pop it 😕

Jessgonsalves Thu 14-Dec-17 21:59:16

i just checked again, and theres no heat on it and its not as red now.
im talking myself out of popping it because I know I shouldn't but I really want to...

Magnesium sulphate paste and plaster
