Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of repeated cuts such as cuts in the leg area as you experience it may be caused by mechanical trauma, whether realized, or not. As is known, the foot is one area that is often exposed to friction, scratches, and excessive pressure so that it is easy to experience injury. This wound, if small in size, and cared for properly, is often not dangerous. Although indeed, the presence of these wounds can cause a sensation of itching, burning, and discomfort when active. If not treated properly, these wounds are also prone to secondary infections, so they can become wet, festering, swollen, reddish, and do not heal.
In addition to mechanical trauma, recurring sores on the bottom of your big toe may also indicate xerosis (dry skin), contact dermatitis, skin infections, clavus (fish eye), callus (calluses), connective tissue abnormalities, and so on. Better, you check your complaint directly to the doctor or dermatologist so that it is evaluated more deeply the possible causes. That way, any treatment can be given right on target.
For now, we recommend that you treat your wound first by cleaning it with sterile gauze moistened with NaCl or povidone iodine. Avoid closing too tight the wound that appears. Bathing and washing the diligent feet with antiseptic soap. Before your activity, first use a moisturizer in your foot area, and if possible, use soft socks before using footwear. Choose the type of shoes and sandals that have a soft foundation, fit your feet, and of course clean. Avoid carelessly applying or taking any medicine to treat injuries without direct advice from a doctor.
Hope this helps ...
