Hi, I am 8 weeks post bunion surgery (austin and osteotomy) with a permanent screw in my foot. My surgeon asked me if I had issues wearing a watch or with belt buckles on my skin – I told him no, but I can’t wear “cheap” fashion earrings, as I’m allergic to them (my ear lobes become red, hot, itchy & a bit swollen). I have a burning sensation on the top of my foot where the bunion was (around the incision area), it aches and is sort of reddish/light purple (a small contained circle).
