I thought maybe a veruca but it is standing proud of the sole and is sore to touch and red around it. She won’t let me touch, let alone stick a needle in!

Has she maybe got something stick in it? Is that a pus head ?

Is it something stuck in her foot?

Looks like something (?splinter / thorn) has got stuck in there and is infected.

Looks like there’s something in there
Mag sulphate if you have it and a plaster

Oooh something in there....

Borris Mon 04-Jun-18 20:43:49

I haven’t got mag sulphate. Can we get it from a pharmacy? If so I’ll head along to one tomorrow

Could she have trodden on a bee sting? I'd be tempted to get her to a walk in clinic if you've got one nearby or the gp in the morning, as she's going to struggle to walk on that.

You could try a warm compress

I remember I used to make a poultice using bread for an infected finger. Probably methods online

Have you any blister plasters, Op? (Hydrocolloid dressing) They can be very effective at getting foreign bodies out of the skin, and stick well for a few days.

Looks infected. Keep a close eye. I have had this a couple of time with my D.C. and Botha times they actually needed antibiotics. Watch out for red tracking marks which means the infection is spreading.

Borris Mon 04-Jun-18 21:42:44

Hmm. We’re going away on weds so maybe I should try to get a doc appt tomorrow then

CorporeSarnie Mon 04-Jun-18 22:29:44

It is very inflamed and an infection risk. Get her to the GP tomorrow if at all possible Borris, she very likely needs antibiotics. Better to have a bad day tomorrow than a ruined holiday.

Thanks all. I’ll ring up first thing for an appointment smile

How's her foot today OP? Did you manage to get a GP appointment?

Borris Wed 13-Jun-18 21:59:26

Sorry naughty OP and didn’t update. I did get an appt. GP thought there was a small splinter in but not worth local anaesthetic and digging around just yet. She said no abs needed but to salt water bathe ... which we did and all perfect nowsmile
