Possible Abscesses: It sounds like you may have some abscesses with or without cellulitis. You may need antibiotics and possible drainage of the abscesses if they are fully formed. In the meantime analgesia like paracetamol and ibuprofen will help but also running the area under hot water and soap as often as it is convenient should help. You should let a doctor take a look at it. ...Read more

See a Podiatrist.: This sounds like it is probably the base of your fifth metatarsals causing some pressure callouses. May also be plantar fibromas but less likely if it is on both feet in the same spot. See a podiatrist, get some x-rays. Probably a very simple problem with a simple solution. If the first doctor you see suggests surgery, get a second opinion. ...Read more

I been getting small painless bumps in pubic area and at the top of each one there is a hair sticking out of the top of it ??

Folliculitis: The skin is getting irritated around the hair follicles. Can be more common if you have curly hair and If you shave the area. If they don't seem infected (visible white pus) there is no danger. You can try soaking the area to allow the hairs to make their way through the skin more easily without causing irritation. Try using a washcloth gently to remove dead skin that could block the follicle. ...Read more

See a podiatrist: You have a problem and an in person exam can pin point it. A differential diagnosis could include, neuroma, plantar plate tear. Those would be my first two thoughts mainly cause the condition is bilateral. So, a stress fracture or the likes would be less likely. ...Read more

Plantar fibroma: The balls on the bottom of your foot sound like plantar fibromas, which are a build up of tissue within the ligament on the bottom of your foot. They are generally benign but can become larger with time. I recommend you see a foot specialist for evaluation and treatment. ...Read more
