Looks a basic injury, maybe a welt, and yes, possibly a bite or sting. It would be a good idea to clean the foot thoroughly to get a better look at it. Warm water with a bit of dish soap is adequate, and if you have an old toothbrush they're useful for scrubbing the dirt from the scales. If the sore itself is open in any place, clean all dirt out of it and apply some neosporin (be sure to use the kind without pain medication). If it is a simple cut or welt, it should heal easily within a couple days. Keep a careful eye on it to be sure it doesn't become infected or swell any more.

If you are very concerned about  her, please post in full detail and with photo to "emergencies, diseases, injuries, cures." thread.   It won't hurt to ask.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
