About a month ago I ran in 4 degree weather – and developed a blood blister (or so I thought). A few weeks later, my toes on my left foot became quite itchy and dry, and the blood blister seemed to go away (ok I drained it). I got some athlete’s foot spray, and the itchiness for the most part subsided.
Now, my toes are red and look a tad blistered, get purple when they are cold, and are a bit puffy. I have webmd’d and from the symptoms it could be frostbite.
Any podiatrist bees out there who could help? Or someone with similar issues?
(I bet you are all happy I did not post pictures!)

I don’t know personally but my suggestion would be to go to a doctor and get it checked.

I demand a picture!
It sounds a bit scary! I’d get it checked out just in case. Wouldn’t want things to get worse, regardless of what it is.

@bowsergirl: I can PM it to you! When I come inside from the cold. 😉
I am going to research podiatrists in the area this weekend and make an appointment. Fiance is worried sick about me. I am a runner too, so I am scared crapless they will tell me something bad. :-/

Sounds like it might indeed have been Frostbite…
Here is the Wikipedia article for reference

PS… Ya, I’d go see a Doctor !!

@mrs_pudding_pop: The sooner, the better! I’d go in right now. The purple may be the “black” that sets in when gangrene is setting in which may require amputation if not treated. I wouldn’t mess with this! & I’m not trying to scare you here! I rarely go to the doctor but if my toes were turning purple I’d go…
