Red Bumps Appear On The Feet And Feel Pain When Stepping?
Suddenly at my feet, the upper part of the waist appeared like a red bump but the middle was white, and it felt painful when walking, what was boils?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically to find out the cause of the appearance of lesions on the skin must be examined directly by the skin. Looking at your brief description, it hasn't really been concluded yet whether the bumps are ulcers or not, but if indeed they appear to be pus-filled, they may be caused by bacterial infections of the skin (boils can be one of the differential diagnoses). Other possible differential diagnoses are infected cysts, abscesses, or secondary infections of the skin wound (for example, before there were insect bites, scratches, fungal infections, etc.).
If the bump is so large that it causes you pain when you step on it, you should do an examination to a dermatologist so that further examination of the bump can be done. Dermatologists can take action to clean the pus in the bump and antibiotics to treat the infection. For now, you can compress the bump with a warm compress. Do not squeeze or prick the bump because it can cause further infections. If it breaks on its own, clean the pus until it is completely clean, wipe the surrounding skin area using alcohol, then cover it with gauze or wound plaster. Make sure you wash your hands afterwards, and don't touch other areas of the skin before you wash your hands with soap.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
