Pedal papules: There is not way to get rid of piezogenic papules. The are papules that result from fat herniating through fascia. I often have patients seeking a surgical consult on these from me. Even surgical removal does not have a good long term success rate. See a podiatrist make sure that is what you are dealing with.

No easy way: sorry there is no easy way to remove these benign skin lesions, they are small fatty deposits that squeeze their way under the skin. There might be a surgical answer
