May need a doctor: If a person gets small brown spots on the bottom of his feet, sometimes they are warts. Other times they are a fungus. If fungus, twice a day over-the-counter lotrimin (clotrimazole) af for 2-3 weeks may solve the problem. If warts, a primary care doctor or dermatologist will likely have to freeze them off. A visit to the doctor can help get a diagnosis, and see if the spots aren't something else.

Get seen: These lesions would likely need to be examined and more history obtained to be able to provide you with useful input about the diagnosis or possible treatment.

Need for a diagnosis: Yes it could be a superficial fungus (eg athlete's feet), and perhaps it was not treated long enough with the right cream and powder; these critters grow in dark, moist corners of the body. It may be another problem, some infections cause itchy feet. Is it the whole foot, does it correspond with your shoeware (contact dermatitis). May need gp or dermatologist to diagnose and fully treat the prob.

No: Kidney stones will produce pain, bilateral feet swelling can be a number of problems including congestive heart fair, vascular insufficiency, chronic renal failure, etc. But chronic swelling needs to be examined and worked up further by your doc which will include lab testing. Hope this helps!
A 29-year-old member asked:

What is the matter with my feet? One has no arch but the other does?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Daniel Hatch
Podiatry 43 years experience
Flatfoot: It may be a normal finding as no two feet are the same. However, if you have noticed a change, it may be related to a gradual elongation of a tendon that supports the arch. If you have associated swelling the tendon may even have a tear in it. If you have symptoms, you should seek medical care.
