I had a large blister on the side of my little toe, it healed eventually but left me with a very painful black area where it had been. At night, when I sleep on my side , that area rests on the mattress and it is almost unbearably painful for such a tiny area and wearing shoes rubs on it no matter how I try to protect it.
I also have infections at the base of my finger nails and I have noticed that when the area heals it often goes black first. This also happened when I recently had a paper cut on my finger.
I have wegeners/GPA and am mid flare and back on prednisolone as well as my plaquenil and waiting for rheumy appointment which I have annually in October but was delayed until January but still waiting.
Any thoughts or advice?
