    Look up 'bumblefoot'. It sounds like what it is. It starts out as a sore on their foot and the bacteria that invades it causes all sorts of problems.

    yup... sounds like bumblefoot. use the search button for a great thread on treating it.


    eta: you have to upload the picture first then use the cut/paste method to attach it here.

    Quote:To attach a picture go straight up to the top along the blue bar where it says "Uploads" then just click on that and it'll take you to the pic upload page. Then copy the text below the pic after it uploads and paste it in your message box.
