Default A bump with a hole in it?

Hi, about a month ago I first noticed a bump on my foot. It's on the right hand side under my right foot, just on the edge of the thick skin from my heel. It's only about a centimetre round and when you look from the side it only protrudes a milimetre or two (not unlike the size of a mosquito bite). It's uncomfortable to walk barefoot, although I don't feel it when I have shoes on. Squeezing or pressing on it hurts as though there's something sharp in there. The skin is very slightly darker on the bump, but no darker than the natural variation around my heel.

Our first thought was a splinter working its way out as I do like to walk barefoot, but I'd have expected that to have pus around it? This skin is solid, like a corn or something. But the really disturbing this is that there's a hole in the centre. You barely even see it, it's only a milimetre or two across and it it looks like another piece of shedding skin on my feet at the moment. But last night I stuck some needle nosed tweezers in to see if I could find a splinter etc, and they went in 3-4mm before hitting the bottom. I don't recall the hole being there to start with, so I think it may be growing. There's no blood or pus or anything coming out, but it may be that it's actually like a deep blister that the thick skin is masking. Now I've found the hole I'm worried that there's an infection or a parasite burrowing into me although there's nothing to see :/

Would a splinter behave that way? Anyone have any other ideas?

Thanks

I read this and couldn't believe it. I have developed the same thing. At first I thought it might be a bone spur or something of the sort. It has continued to grow and harden but at the top is a circular area that is depressed. It has a general dull pain that is slightly worse when you push directly down on it, but the pain increases greatly with pressure parallel to the skin (like drawing a finger across it). Would love some insight into this.

The same thing happened to me too. I think it's gotten bigger. Also another one appeared on the same foot and on the other one too. I'm just scared if it's cancerous.

If it hurts you should consult your doctor. that is the very first thing you should consider when it comes to foot pain or problems.

It's called a plantar wart. It will eventually go away without the help of a doctor. My mother used to get them when she was young and I have one on my foot as well but it is by my toes. I asked her about it and she said it takes quite awhile to go away but they will eventually. I think they come from walking around outside barefoot.

Probably a plantar wart (Can't tell without seeing it)

In most cases it goes away by itself, but you must try to reduce pressure from the area by not wearing tight shoes.
It some cases it can also be surgically removed.

Use compound-w patches from the drugstore. I have one of those now, and it seemed to get worse but now it is dying. It should speeden the process.
