Bumps on the bottom of the foot

    I have recently noticed a number of small bumps on the bottom of my right foot. They seem to be under the skin. There is no pain but they are recent... I have just noticed because I was sitting crosslegged and decided to give my feet a rub and that's when I felt little bumps on the arch of my foot. They seem to be clustered together but there is no discoloration (they're the color of my skin) and I don't think they're warts because I have had warts on my hands and they do not look the same. I have not done anything in terms of treatment because I do not know what they are.


    Here is my image gallery, on it there are four pictures that may hopefully show what I have. The third picture seems to be the best and most accurate picture.

    I may be making mountains out of molehills but I would certainly like some information.

    Thanks. :)

    I had similar sores, and they've turned into little craters with hard bumps in the middle. Doctors keep telling me it's athletes foot, I don't experience any itching, flaking, or peeling on my feet (I did for a brief period get athletes foot from a shower which has since been scrubbed, and I had all the classic symptoms). I've developed a painful burning itch that is mainly on my legs that seems to be an allergic reaction of some sort.

    Has anyone figured out what this it because I have the same thing.
    Mine seem to come when I've been on my feet all day in hot heavy work boots. Sometimes they itch and drive me crazy but then they're gone by morning.
    I don't want to go to the doctor for something so minor but it does bother me when I get them.

    Did you ever figure out what they were? I get the same thing! They get very itchy and swell after I scratch them, otherwise they stay almost flat. I didn't think they were warts either, as I have had a few. Love to know what you found out!

    I have the exact same thing. it flares up every few months and bothers me for a couple weeks (because it's so itchy). the bumps swell when i scratch them. Has anyone figured out what this is?

    Possibly pompholyx. Google a picture of it and compare.

    I have the same thing, but I googled the pompholyx, definitely NOT that.

    Similar to the photos you posted. But I don't find that they get itchy or red and swollen...

    Any other ideas...?

    I also had similar bumps - like small blisters that would itch and swell if you scratch them - enough scratching and they would burst and clear fluid would come out.
    I went to a skin specialist and he said it was actually a form of tinia - I purchased some antifungal cream and applied it for several weeks and haven't seen them since (about 12 months ago). I had nothing between my toes and there was no odor so was surprised it was tinia.

    i've recently noticed that i ALSO have these little annoying bumps on the bottom of my foot. on the same foot, i also have a heel spur so i thought the little bumps were baby heel spurs, but i don't thing so. i've done some research and i found...
    --Plantar Warts: Plantar warts are ordinary warts of the sole, or plantar surface, of the foot. Since plantar warts are on a pressure area, they grow inward and are often tender and painful. Like other warts, they are harmless skin growths that are caused by a virus.
    --Porokeratoses: These lesions are described as dozens of discrete or grouped seedlike hyperkeratotic lesions with characteristic thin, raised ridgelike margins that develop on the palms and the soles. Patients usually have other forms of porokeratosis as well, most commonly the linear or Mibelli types. Because of their description many patients will refer to them as seed corns.
    --Plantar Fibromas: A plantar fibroma is a fibrous knot (nodule) in the arch of the foot. It is embedded within the plantar fascia, a band of tissue that extends from the heel to the toes on the bottom of the foot. A plantar fibroma can develop in one or both feet, is benign (non-malignant), and usually will not go away or get smaller without treatment. Definitive causes for this condition have not been clearly identified.

    Looking up pictures for these conditions may help understand them better.
    Hope this helped some.

    Hope this helps!

    its just a common thing to me. what i think is that our skin harden up due to excessive pressure on that certain part. i get in on my finger sometimes. it goes away.

    I also have one on my left foot. I showed it to my mom and told me it's "FUNGI" or whatever. luckily, we have this anti-fungal ointment that I put on. It's disappearing already :D

    Mine has little bumps (like the picture)
    Itches T^T
    when you try to scratch it umm... liquid comes out (clear and it looks like water)
    they become many.
    they like peel off but them comes back.

    what you all are experiencing is a form of eczema. the "bumps" appear when your body experiences high stress or anxiety levels. it is not fungi-related, but you should consult your doctors to find the best way to keep it at bay. hope this helps.

    I have similar bumps on only my right foot. I went to a podiatrist over two years ago when I just had one. I was certain that it was a wart. He wasn't sure because people usually don't come in when warts are small to have them treated. He treated it as a wart for about 2 months and nothing changed. It has turned into a little callus now which comes and goes as the weather changes. I went to get a second opinion and was told that it was porokeratosis. I was instructed to just let it heal and leave it alone. I just recently noticed two more on my toe which are a bit more painful. I am going to the docotor in 2 days to have them trimmed down which will relieve some pressure.

    My sister in law shares the same experience. She had a little bump that turned into a callus. When she was picking at it she could so a tiny bubble under the skin. She was also diagnosed with porokeratosis. I had her look at my foot and she thinks it's the same thing.

    These don't look like warts to me although I know that warts appearance varies my the stain of the virus and from person to person. With mine, there are clear borders around it and my skin striation goes around them just like in your pic but warts aren't the only skin ailment with those symptoms.

    Hope that they have gone away for you now!

    Have you checked to see if there are any bumps on the inside of your hands? Or the inside of your lips or on your tongue? If so you may have Hand foot and mouth disease. I caught this as an adult after working in a daycare where a few infants had caught it! It went away on its on, but I still needed to go to the doctor to get a note because it is contagious!

    I have them also, but only on my right foot. My chiropractor looked at them while treating my feet and said he did not know what they were either. No itching, peeling, or anything -- they are just there. If you discover what they are and how to treat them, please let me know.
