What are these growing on my feet

Posted , 3 users are following.

hey guys,

so for the longest time, I'd get small little pus filled pimples at the base of my feet,mostly on the sides and they would dry up then begin to peel then it goes away. The first time I saw as far as I can remember was in 2020 definitely or even earlier I just never paid any attention to them like that and when I bring it up with my parents they say it's a fungal infection.

However, now they have started leaving scars and new ones growing even two at a time.

Does anyone know what they possibly could be?

These are the scars left behind from what they were, usually they would peel and just disappear, like this (I hope you can see the peeling area)

but this time they have stayed like that for sometime

and now I have this new one, came out if nowhere, I did not have it in the morning and now I do.

    Do they itch? Its possible they are a fungal infection and you should be able to buy a cream in any chemist pharmacy for this. Ask for one for athletes foot. It may also be eczema as well but try the fungal cream first .

    i had something what looked like this on the bottom of my feet. it was me wearing tight closed shoes and thick socks in summer for my job and ended up being a fungal infection i think, i just washed my feet more often, and changed my socks more often and cleaned my shoes and it eventually went. i would always advise going to a dr tho xx

      Oh, they'd peel and all? I really want these things to go away I can't wear open shoes with short things because they are just there. Okay I'll try do that, especially the socks that could be a key cause. How long did it take for yours to go away?
