    Can you get a pimple on the bottom of your foot?

    Yesterday the bottom of my foot started to hurt like I was stepping on something. This morning when I got up I could barely walk on it. It hurts BAD. Well there is a small lump and it is all red. DH says it could be a pimple and wants me to put pimple cream on it. I personally, can't imagine you can get a pimple on the bottom of your foot with how dirty they always get. The lump is a little bit bigger then a typical inflamed pimple. It hurst. It's crazy. Just overnight. And I have to be on it all day to cook.

    I vote for a bite. A pimple would be pretty unlikely... :dunno

    I agree with Bree... I also wonder if it could be where you got a splinter or something small in it and it just got irritated. I hope it gets better soon!! :hug

    the other thing that comes to mind is a plantar wart. but probably a bite

    That is what I am thinking Kristin. I cut DH's hair and have on several occasions had one of his hairs stick in my foot. I just cut his hair this weekend and am wondering if one got in there without me noticing.

    Bree, good idea. I had not thought of a bite. It hasn't itched though, but I guess not all bites can itch, right?

    It could be a piece of glass or something similar that's been stuck in their for a while and your body is pushing it out. I have had that happen before. And it looks like a pimple because it basically is.

    I was thinking plantar wart also.

    I'm sure not all bites itch :)

    I've had that happen with a hair too - and if you were using one of those clipper things, they make teeny little hairs that could get stuck.. but if it is on the ball of your foot or on your heel, I'd be pretty surprised, because most people have such thick skin there..
    I hope it gets better soon! :)

    I bet it's a hair. My husband shaves his head in the kitchen and I am always getting hairs in my foot for days. I hope you get it out!

    It is in the ball of my foot where it is thick skin and the lump is more IN my foot then out of my foot.

    Would a plantar wart come on so quickly?

    :yeah They hurt!

    Mine have always come on quickly. You can buy the medicine and it comes with a little band aid type pad that goes over it so it doesn't hurt.

    I had something like that a couple of months ago. It was hard, kind of like a small boil and it hurt. It had a head on it too. It eventually just went away, but only after I lanced it and kept it clean and medicated. Sorry, it is gross.

    When I've been bit by a fire ant on my foot, that is how it looks. I'd vote fire ant or insect bite. So sorry!

    I think something might have gotten stuck in it as well... right now I have a small pimple like thing on my foot, and Brandon went to investigate, sure enough something is in there... but I am a baby so I'm waiting to see if it comes out on its own! :dunno

    I vote plantar wart also. They hurt & they do just appear it seems like. I had a HORRIBLE case in high school that they could only get rid of by cutting out of my foot. Hopefully it's something else, but if it doesn't get better soon, go see a podiatrist.

    Oh Helen, me too! It was so bad that the podiatrist got all excited and took pictures of it so that he could show his colleagues. :bag I had over SEVENTY of them on the bottom of my foot. I had to soak my foot in FORMALDEHYDE every day and then go in weekly to have the bottom layer of my foot scraped off. It was so incredibly painful. :eek

    I am soaking in Epson Salt as we speak. it has gotten redder and a little larger/harder.
