Hi Guys n Girls ,

Ill be brief and to the point . Hopefully its "skin" related .

Used a hot water bottle on my toes ( still wearing socks ) during an afternoon nap about 4weeks ago .

Woke up to feel a little burning sensation on 5th toe . Discovered a small circle burn on the edge of the toe joint - if that makes sense . Used cream and a plaster for a few days then stopped . it seemed to rise alittle and look white after a few days . Foolishly tried to burst it but didnt manage to so just kept using plasters / cream .

Fast forward 3weeks : no pain walking . Tenderness if rubbed against something or pressed . However it seems to have turned black maybe its bruised i dunno . But hasnt enlarged and no sign of pus .
I am on doxycycline for other stuff would that clear out infection ?

It wouldnt be Cellulitsis ? Is it Doctor time ?
