  4. QUESTION:
    I have a pimple on my toe that popped and now it hurts to even walk. Help?
    Last night I saw a bump on my third(middle) toe, right at the base of the toe where it touches the foot. I thought it was just a bug bite and let it go until today, when it popped as I was walking in my house. I gently squeezed it a little and a near-white puss came out followed by a watery liquid.

    A couple of hours later, it now hurts quite a bit, even worse when I try to walk.

    Any solutions?

    • ANSWER:
      Epsom salts good, you could always put a bandaid or two over it for cushioning. If it still hurts then go to the foot care section of a pharmacy and look for something called corn cushions, theyre are small adhesive foam circles with the center cut out so you put it over the area and its effectively cushioned.
