Hole-shaped sores on bottom of toes.

User Profile
I have two small hole shaped sores on the bottom of my big toe, they hurt when pressure is applied and stick out a little, I haven't tried anything yet to get rid of them. They seemed to have formed shortly after I spent a day walking barefoot on pavement. Any remedies for removal would be highly appreciated.

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i understand your concern.These are due to friction and pressure that causes a majority of blisters on the feet. When the skin of the feet is continually rubbed against a shoe, sock, or rough surface, irritation and inflammation often occur. The result is pain, swelling, and redness. Rest for a few days, topical emollients like petroleum jelly and supportive pain killers and avoiding such walks in future is advised.

Take care
