A strange title no? But the tale is true so here you go.
For several years I've battled warts and I have an especially large plantar wart on the bottom of my big left toe. I admit that sometimes I pick at it (and I know I shouldn't so you don't have to comment on that) and that is where the trouble first started.
On Monday it started to hurt but it had done that before and after a day or so it would start to feel better. This was not the case and I spend most of Monday night in lots and lots of pain. I think I finally went to sleep about 3am and slept fitfully until my alarm went off at 7am. I called and got an appointment to see my doctor at 4pm on Tuesday. Getting an appointment was an ordeal in itself but I won't bore you with those details since you all know how I hate Kaiser.
I went to the dr on Tuesday and he looked at the toe and determined that it was not infected but that the pressure on the plantar wart and the calus that surrounded it ended up giving me a blood blister on the rest of my toe. So he cut down the calus/wart and it felt better but I spent another night in pain. Today (Wednesday) I decided to stay home and keep my foot up and I think its helped. I actually slept and didn't have any pain earlier this am so I was very happy about that.
So I need to make an appointment with the dermatologist to have the wart taken care of and the others that I have. I definately don't want to go through that pain again. It wasn't fun.
