Many things...: You can use the liquid nitrogen, liquid nitrous oxide (this is what I like to use), topical acids, dermal scraping. You can also try oral cimetadine (400 mg three times a day for 12-16 weeks). This is very safe and had the side effect of getting rid of warts for many people of adult size and weight (japma november 1, 1995 vol. 85 no. 11 717-718). Laser treatments, excisional surgery, etc., etc. ...Read more

I have 2 hard and somewhat painful lumps on the side sole of feet they are on the outside of each foot, what is it?
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
