I experienced this skin disease for almost 2 months. This disease has a small small hole in the sole of the foot and feels painful if pressed. And this is not just one hole but a lot.

Hello Wegii,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

The emergence of small holes in the sole of the foot that feels painful may appear related to the infection. Infections in the legs, for example due to bacteria, can cause inflammation that makes the feet feel painful, reddish, swollen, and contain fluid or pus in them. If not handled properly, the liquid or pus that is buried inside the foot will find a way out and form an abnormal channel that connects it to the surface of the skin (fistula). Often, if the infection is the cause, from these holes will come out liquid or pus that smells bad and makes feet wet continuously.


Need to be clarified, in addition to holes and pain, are there any signs of inflammation as mentioned above that you experience?


In addition to infections and fistulas, holes in the soles of your feet may also be caused by chapped skin, eyelets, leprosy, other infections, and so on. Direct physical examination is needed to identify the cause of this complaint. Therefore, you should check yourself directly to a doctor or dermatologist so that the best treatment is given, ok?


Here are our initial suggestions:

Do not exaggerate the painful area, especially with dirty hands
Be diligent in the bath and wash your feet with antiseptic soap
Always keep your feet dry and clean
Wear footwear that are comfortable, clean, and dry, not exchanged with others
To reduce pain, you can take paracetamol if necessary

Hope this helps ...
