Health advice for lump on toe
  • Crush some ice cubes, wrap them in a plastic sheet and apply it on the lump for 10 minutes. This will provide relief from pain and swelling. Repeat it whenever pain aggravates. If you do not get any relief in your pain from this cold fermentation then try applying a heating pad to your lump similarly.
  • Give a massage to your lump for 5 to 7 minutes twice daily.
  • Add some Epsom salt to half a bucket of water and soak your feet in it for 10 minutes 2 or 3 times everyday. This will reduce pain and inflammation. You can also use plain water or salted water for the same.
  • Rest your legs as often as you can. Prop them up on some pillows or a stool when you are lying down or sitting. Avoid putting too much pressure on your feet by walking slowly and covering only short distances.
  • Avoid running, lifting or carrying any heavy objects for sometime.
  • Wear comfortable shoes or sandals till your lump is cured. Late on also keep away from wearing high heeled sandals or shoes and get rubber insoles to provide extra support to your feet and cushion them.
