African Clawed Frog might be sick

Hey guys,

My ACF that I've had since October (and is now GIGANTIC compared to when I got her) has this red bump on her foot and I don't know what it's from. I've kept the tank regularly cleaned about once a week, and have gravel vacuumed, added aquarium salt (less than recommended because I don't want to bug them too much), and I'm now treating the water with Melafix and Pimafix since I've noticed this bump. I have a filter with a bio-wheel, and took out my filter so the carbon does not filter out the Pimafix and Melafix

Picture of Tristan (name I gave to it before I discovered it was female) is here:

EDIT: Well I guess it won't let me post links so... what do I do?

Hopefully it's nothing, but we'll see.

Thanks in advance!

Im not sure what it is, but be careful about treating her. Frogs absorb eveything through their skin, including any meds and chemicals.

"For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear.They are not brethen, they are not underlings; they are other nations caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth."
