Any new pigmented skin lesion anywhere on your foot should be looked at by your podiatrist or dermatologist to see if a biopsy is needed.

I have small white dots of skin on bottom of my foot in multiple spots. Dots have small holes, and holes aren't deep. It's not painful. What is it?
Is the first thing I would suspect. The fungi eat skin, and can leave holes. Tinea pedis (to sound nerdy) is easily fixed with a topical anti fungal, such as tolnaftate. Go for the generics, they're cheaper.
Have you changed what your feet see? Walking on hot sand barefoot? New flip flops? If there's anything new, try changing back.
If these don't work, and the problem persists, see a doctor. ...Read more

Trimmed toenails-noticed dark grey raised spot next to big toenail-slight pain, think it was ingrown nail. Trimmed off spot of skin, it bled a bit, blood went deep, and a tiny bit of clear liquid (pus?). Cleaned w/isop. Alcohol + bandaid. Infected?
Probably: It does sound like an ingrown toenail, which usually does involve infection. The corner of the nail grows into the skin edge and burrows in causing infection. If it is mild, you can sometimes keep the nail edge elevated out of the skin and it can grow past the area. If that does not work, probably would be good to be seen. ...Read more
