A lump on the heel: how to treat and what to do?
The first steps in the appearance of bumps on the heel
In our life there are many diseases, so we can not know for sure about how to treat them all correctly. If you have a bump on your heel, you first need to find out what size it is and how it can be characterized, whether there is pain.

But before you start self-treatment, you need to establish the type of the disease. After all, a bump on the heel can occur for various reasons, and, therefore, require different treatment. For example, if in the morning you feel pain in the heel, then first try to remember yesterday's events. You may have been injured yesterday as a result of some kind of action. For example, a bump on the heel appeared, if you were not careful and stumbled or made a bad jump.As a result, your leg hurts because the connective tissues inflamed overnight. In order to reduce the sensation of pain, anti-inflammatory ointments should be used.
Plain corn - one of the reasons for the appearance of cones

Doctors believe that in this case the bump on the heel is harmless to your health and only causes discomfort. In order to facilitate your life and remove the corn, you just need to change shoes. After a while, you will feel light and your problems will disappear completely. Doctors also urge to be careful, because it may not be a normal callus, but a wart. After all, they are very similar. The only difference is that the warts themselves do not pass and require special treatment. The main reason for their appearance is virus ingestion. Their treatment is very difficult, so it is better to consult a specialist. He will select a course of treatment for you specifically for your body.
The appearance of a bump is a heel spur
Heel spurs are another reason for the appearance of a bump on the heel. Experts call spurs peculiar spikes. They, appearing on the heel, cause severe pain. Only a specialist will be able to decide whether you have a heel spur or a normal growth on the heel. Sometimes for accurate diagnosis it is necessary to take an X-ray. The main cause of this disease is often flatfoot, but sometimes viral diseases. Specialists say that a special therapeutic heel massage or heel rolling on the floor of a wooden rolling pin helps very well in treatment. In order to make a compress, you must use fresh tomatoes or potatoes. It is better to do a compress at night, because it is at this time that your body is at rest. To keep the compress well, you need to fix it with a film, after which you should wear a sock. If this treatment does not help, then to cure the growth on the foot or heel, it is better to contact a surgeon or orthopedist.
