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?

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.
