Default Red blister/ball

Hey guys, my axolotl that i have had for about 2 months now has developed a red blister like object in the shape of a ball on his front right foot. I had fridged him for 2 days with no improvement, although he seemed as though he was shedding?? can anyone help he with what this might be? also if axolotls shed or not?

Thanks guys,

Could you post a picture of the blister?

Also, to help us get a better idea of what could have caused this -
What is his tank set up like? (size, substrate, filtration, lighting, decor, plants etc)
Diet?
Anything sharp he could have rubbed on?
Water parameters? (Temperature, ammonia/nitrite/nitrate readings)
