This is not an unusual emergency presentation to our offices, sometimes it can be as simple as sun exposure, often thermal (heat or cold) and commonly chemical in origin.
Next time you decide to spoil yourself with a little foot soak or foot spa remember to get the water temperature sorted prior to inserting your feet. Possibly even use a thermometer to double check the temp. Absolutely never add boiling water while your feet are immersed, it only takes a second of contact with the skin for horrendous results. Reduced circulation or sensation will make the situation worse and delay healing.
In the event of such a wound, the earlier you receive attention the faster it will heal and reduce possible complications. Better to find out it’s not too bad than to be informed you shouldn’t have waited.
