You should consider having it examined and biopsied which will basically take care of 2 things - it will remove the immediate problem and help determine what it is. See a podiatrist! ...Read more

I have small bumps on my hands. Not itchy at all. There are two on my feet and they look like they are infected and red. Worried?

Needs to be seen: A rash on the hands could be the sign of something serious -but a full history and examination is necessary to determine that. If you had a photo you could show us on Health Tap, that would help tremendously. Also whether that was the palms or the back of the hands would help narrow down some of the possibilities. Question is if you have other significant symptoms like headache, fevers/chills, etc ...Read more
