Default Bumps on the bottom of the foot

Hello,

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.

Question Re: Bumps on the bottom of the foot

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!

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.

Post Re: Bumps on the bottom of the foot

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.

Mine has little bumps (like the picture)
Itches T^T

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.

Default Re: Bumps on the bottom of the foot

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.

My doctor basically told me it's just when your feet have too much moisture in the shoe and don't get enough air and he told me to go get medicated foot powder. So far it seems to be the trick haven't had em for a few years now.

A lot of interesting answers, but maybe there is another possibility. A lot of doctors give fancy names to things that don't have a readily available diagnosis. Most creams work because these water blisters resolve in about 4 or 5 days into another layer of skin with the old skin peeling off.
The cause that brought mine on was an allergy that came from drinking beer, eating cheap ice cream, or eating lots of steak. The common component in all of those is a specific protein. I still eat steak, but limit quantities of beef. Ice cream has been displaced with other things like sherbert or Italian ice. Beer can still bring on the blisters with as few as one or two cans. The blisters show up on the bottom of my foot first, if the outbreak is slightly larger it migrates to between my toes, and then finally between my fingers.
Since identifying the cause as an allergic reaction, I haven't had any blisters form on my fingers, and only rarely on the bottom of my feet. The first manifestation is alway on my right foot.

I seem to have the same problem, but despite many discussions with my doctor I have been able to narrow down to a diet issue. Yes, the consumption of RED meat could be the cause of the, some times, itchy, bumpy, scaly little bumps under and around one or both feet. The red meat could be causing too much uric acid. These little bumps can be skin color, but have a tendency to become painful and itchy at times. They could be grouped or individually spread through your feet. As these bumps dry out, they have a tendency to change to a dark color, and even become scaly. To remediate the outbreaks, you might need to change your diet where read meat can be replaced with chicken and fish. I also seem to feel that the consumption of oats can help flares. I would be very interested to find out about your experiences as you make changes to your diet.

Just saw this thread, and it appears that these are more than one condition, although they appear similar.

Dermatology is a complicated science, as lots of conditions look the same, yet require different treatments. Conversely, the same condition will appear different on different people.

Athlete's foot is caused by quite a few different fungi. Commonly;
Trichophyton (T.) rubrum
T. interdigitale, previously called T. mentagrophytes var. interdigitale
Epidermophyton floccosum

These thre fungi can produce a range of skin complaint, ranging from redness (erythema), blisters, flaking skin, ithchiness or even fissures.

Urticaria (Hives or allergic rashes) can present as redness and itching, but in severe cases blister may form aswell.

The only reliable way to diferentiate skin conditions is to see someone who knows the difference.

Look up Angioedema it's a form of hives
I have dealt with this for the past ten years, had blood work done...nothing, went to an Allergist and was given a Rx for zyrtex and tagamet for the relief. Was told that it's an allergic reaction, body producing too much histamines, I've had it on my hands, feet, lips, eyelids and throat (gotta be careful with the throat due to obstruction airways)
I lived in central Fl when it started, moved south to the Fl keys and it went away, moved back to central fl. and it started again...so, I'm assuming that its some kind of tree or something airborne. Feel your pain or Itch, Hope this helps!

Unhappy Re: Bumps on the bottom of the foot

went to dr and they said its

Plantar warts and palmer warts are noncancerous skin growths, caused by a viral infection in the top layer of the skin. The culprit is a strain of virus called human papillomavirus or HPV. Many strains of the virus exist, and those that cause common warts on the hands and feet are not the same strains of HPV that cause genital warts.

Some people mistakenly think plantar warts or palmer warts are malignant. In fact, they are not harmful. Eventually, in about two years, most warts go away without treatment. Warts can, however, cause irritation or minor pain, depending on their location. Also, warts may appear unsightly and make the person who has them self-conscious.

What Do Plantar Warts and Palmer Warts Look Like?

On average plantar warts and palmer warts are small, about the size of a pencil eraser. But some warts grow bigger. Sometimes plantar warts can grow in clusters; those are called mosaic warts.

Sometimes corns or calluses are mistaken for a palmer or plantar wart. In some warts, little black dots appear, leading people to call them "seed" warts. Actually the black dots are little blood vessels that have grown up into the wart. Warts don’t really have “seeds.”

Plantar warts usually don't stick up above the skin as much as warts on the hand, partly because of the pressure of walking and its flattening effect.

How Do You Get a Plantar Wart or Palmer Wart?

Warts are spread from person to person. The transmission can be indirect. For instance, a child with a wart on his hand may touch a playground surface that is then touched by another child and the wart spreads. Or a person with a plantar wart uses a shower without wearing shower shoes and another person then uses it and develops a wart. The risk of getting a hand or foot wart from another person is small.

A person's risk of getting a wart varies. Those with a weakened immune system are more susceptible. But those with healthy immune systems can also develop warts.

What Are Treatments for Plantar Warts and Palmer Warts?

Plantar warts and palmer warts will often eventually go away without treatment. If they bother you, however, you can treat common skin warts in a variety of ways.

Duct tape is one home remedy. Put a small strip over the wart and leave it on for six days. Then, remove the tape, soak the wart in water, and then gently debride it with a pumice stone or emory board. Repeat the process many times until the wart is gone. This may take a couple of months. Don’t expect miracles with this type ot treatment since it probably does not work any better than a placebo.
Over-the-counter wart treatments work about 50% of the time. These wart removers usually work by peeling the wart.
Doctor's treatments include freezing the wart off with liquid nitrogen, removing the wart with laser or surgery, or applying or injecting medicines to strengthen the immune system so it can clear your body of the virus.
