A black blister on my toe ?
Blisters are the result of feet being crammed inside of shoes that are pounding the pavement for mile after mile for days, weeks and race seasons on end. In my case, a blister will usually turn into a callus. Blisters are caused by the feet swelling inside of shoes that may be too small or poorly fit, rubbing of toes against each other and other common causes like wrinkled socks rubbing for too long. You should boil a needle for 5-10 minutes in water and once cool, carefully pierce the blister. Press the fluid out and use an antiseptic cream on it. Cover the area with a product such Band-Aid Blister Block or moleskin to protect against infection and provide cushioning. Before walking, use a lubricant on all areas that generally blister. Some people use petroleum jelly or bag balm or talcum. For long walks, using large amounts of petroleum jelly reapplied every 10 miles solved my own blister problems. SportSlick, BodyGlide, runners' lube or other anti-chafing lubricants can also work to prevent foot blisters when applied before the walk. One walker recommended that every night for a month before a big walking event massage both feet with pure lanolin (wool fat). It's better than Vaseline as it doesn't create heat when friction occurs. It's also a good barrier for water in case in rains. Also great for your hands.

I got a blister on my foot, now what?
Wash it with soap and water, rub an antibiotic ointment into it, and put a bandaid over it. It looks like it’s at the juncture between your ankle and foot. If your shoes have laces, loosen the laces over this spot.A long time ago, when I was a child, companies use to make their shoes out of something that looked like leather, but wasn’t. When I got a new pair, I would invariable get blisters on my heels and learned to wear bandaids the until I got the shoes ‘broke in’.
Blood Blisters On Heel Of Foot?
A Blood Blister is a collection of blood that forms a bubble under the skin and can be quite large or very small. A blood blister is a pouch of blood that forms under the skin due to a pinch or bruise of some sort. A blood blister can be quite painful when it first occurs. If you break a blood blister, only a small amount of blood will come out, but it will leave the skin raw and sore. This leaves the skin open to infection. Some people put a band - aid over a blood blister to protect it from breaking. If left alone, a blood blister will dry up and heal, but it may take a few days. In the meantime, the skin around the blood blister will be very sore. The best treatment for a blood blister is to drain the blood from the pouch without braking open the top skin. Leaving the top skin over a blood blister lessens the possibility of infection. In order to drain a blood blister you can take a very sharp pin and sterilize it in scalding hot water. Put it through the skin at the bottom of the blood blister and allow the blood to drain out. This allows the blood blister to heal without causing any opening in the top skin. Applying an antiseptic ointment after breaking the blood blister speeds up the healing and prevents infection. You should then cover the area of the blood blister with a bandage and change the dressing daily until the blood blister heals.

How can I know if a black blister on my foot is the result of an allergic reaction?
Why would you think it’s part of a allergic reaction? If I were you. If your not sure how you got it/ how to treat it. And google or utube doesn’t help. Or not enough. I’d go to the doctor. Possibly two. If it’s likely an allergic response you can go to an allergist. But if it isn’t. Go to your internist ( If you need a referral only) or just go straight to a dermatologist.
Could this black dot on my foot be cancer?
The redness indicates infection, heading more one-way than another (towards the heart, presumably). As a Podiatrist it looks more like a puncture wound with a scab beneath the surface, or the back-end of a splinter or some other foreign object. This does not look like a melanoma - there is a hard edge to the lesion, not a leeching into surrounding tissues. Your best approach is to seek professional advise, given the deeper infection that appears to be taking hold.
Why do I have black blister-type things on my belly that have extremely black blood coming out of, and leaving a large hole?
Someone wonders about black “blisters on “belly” with black blood leaving a large hole”. Well, it will take very little time to get a very good answer at any health clinic or emergency room. It’s unwise to seek answers on frightening skin lesions using the web. If you are penniless, then treatment is even easier as there’s free access in any County Hospitals in the USA while other hospitals will provide whatever immediate care is needed for free!I would wonder about spider bites but it’s of no value speculating. We have no photographs, we know nothing about social and history or other illnesses or exposure to toxic materials. While this is a fascinating academic question, if someone is actually suffering these lesions, an exam by a trained physician is the only way forward.Asher
