What is wrong with my foot?

I had gotten new shoes for my new school year. After about 2 weeks, my foot started to hurt in the back, right above my heel. I took my shoe off one day, and there was a sore. I think its a blister, but its more of a cut now. Should I see a doctor? It hurts to walk and I'm limping and everything. Thank you.

If the heel pain is so bad your limping get a mirror and check to see if blister/cut is inflamed red or draining yellow or green. You may need to have a Dr look at it to see if you need antibiotics. You can wash it with Dial soap or any antibacterial soap several times a day and dry it and apply betodine/iodine afterwards. After iodine dries then apply triple antibiotic ointment and a bandaid/bandage until you can get into Dr visit if that does not help it heal up before the Dr visit. Also after its improving use the mole stuff mentioned earlier. You need it to be almost healed before using mole covering to keep it healing. That's the best advice this RN nurse can give you at this time. Saying a prayer your feet are healed and healthy ASAP. Good Luck

Try a soft liner.

you just haven't broken in the shoes yet. You can get something called "mole skin" ( no it isn't made of moles( the little mouse like things) and either put it directly on your heel ( it will stay on better than a bandaid because you can cut the piece to the size you want), or in the back of the shoe to help give you something that won't rub painfully on your heel. If you ever feel like you're getting a blister, smack it ( literally) so that you increase the blood flow to the area, which will help reduce the chances of getting the blister ( this only works when you first feel any sort of pain from rubbing, not after the blister has formed, you can use "second skin" to help protect the broken blister ( found at drug stores)
