I Have an itchey small lump on the bottom middle of my foot and when I touch it it stings. This is happening in the same area on both feet. Help.

But, since it appears on both feet, in essentially the same location, then there is a possibility of the shoes causing an irritation. Not to deny that you could have developed a wart on both feet at the same time and same location. Even having a foreign body in both feet is not as likely as the shoe theory. ...Read more

Try hydrocortisone cream and Benadryl (diphenhydramine). If it doesn’t improve, have it examined. ...Read more
