Foot Biopsy
I had a biopsy done on a mole on the bottom of my foot, I was told to cover it with a bandaid until it heals. It has been 3 days and it continues to bleed.  I am afraid that I should not be walking on it as it stretches when I walk and i can feel it tear open again.  Should I be using crutches?

Hi there!

It is not necessary to avoid weight bearing or use crutches. Just pad the wound well with gauze after application of an antibiotic ointment. The wound should heal well in a few days.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
