Old blood blister underneath a callus. Should I just leave it? (potentially icky details inside)
posted by Lucinda to Health & Fitness (8 answers total)
I am forming a callus on my foot, which I would like to maintain (for skating). However, before the callus started to form, I got a blood blister which never really drained. The fluid in the blister (blood and pus, I'm imagining) is still there, and because it's black, I'm assuming that it's dried out.
Is it safe to just leave it, allow the callus to form and just have this black spot on my foot, or should I try to remove the callus, clear out whatever's in there, and start over on the callus? Or should I talk to a doctor? I know that you are not a doctor and you are not my doctor.
