Well, I have been having a problem with blisters on my feet after I go for a walk. I saw the podiatrist who said to get wicked (pronounced "wikkt") socks to let my feet air out more as I walk.
I got them and they worked. Until a few days ago. I came home one AM from a walk and had a blister under the toenail. Not happy and it was very painful/throbbing. I put bacitracin around the nail, covered it up, aired it out, etc. But the morning after (I didn't go walking after I got the blister) I go the blister, the skin was pink around the nail, so I continued with the bacitracin. Soon after I noticed it, it had become red around the whole top of the toe, but I was still letting it go with the bacitracin.
However, soon after there was a red streak below the nail. This all happened within 2 days. Last night it got very painful and the throbbing got worse, so I emailed my DR to see if he knew of anything to help and he prescribed an antibiotic (not sure which one yet, need to pick it up), with an appt for the end of next week. So I am hoping this works!
