Wart or ulcer corn on tip of toe

by Meg
(Helsinki, Finland)

Hi I have a wart or a corn with an ulcer on the tip of my second toe for 3 months now. It started as a small blister from wearing flip flops and gotten worse after a pedicure. It started growing little spikes of simingly dead flesh and when I tried to cut it it bled. It's sore and painful to touch (push and squeeze) and I'm not sure what Im dealing with. Would you have any advice?

I was worried too... NEW

My toe looked like that. I had three spots like this very near each other. Two were even connected. The doctor debrided the two connected a bit and said it was warts. They he applied silver nitrate to the debrided ones and put a bandaid on it and said to go get Compound W with the seal and use it every day for a week. I'm wondering why he did not debride the third one. I hope the Compound W is enough. He said to come back in a week and if it wasn't healing to use cantharidine medication.

Looks like a wart. it bleeds because it is quite vascular- has blood vessels running through it (hence the black dots).

Go to a chiropodist/ podiatrist to doubly check that it is one (other things have been known to mimic warts) then they should be able to reduce the hard skin and apply a treatment type. Once they have got it managed you might be able to keep on top of it at home. Remember though warts can come back.
