Question Blood Vessels In Foot

I went on a 10 mile hike with my son and his boy scout troop today and my feet are hurting pretty bad. Once I got home I noticed that on the bottom of one of my feet is a big red spot, I am assuming this is a broken blood vessel due to the walking, I am overweight and I was wondering if anyone knew how I can fix this or should I go to the doctor? I have never had this problem before so I am sure it is the walking but I walk alot in an effort to losen weight but this has never happened before. Help

Re: Blood Vessels In Foot

I am not a doctor and you haven't posted a photo of your foot, but as a former Boy Scout my bet is blood blister. Search online for proper treatment of blisters. This ***** link (since ***** is a partner of HealthBoards) talks about how to treat smaller blisters.

If you have a blister and it does not appear to start healing on its own within 4 days, or if it gets infected, then you should see a doctor.
