Little, red, slightly itchy, painful bumps

About a week ago I noticed a little red bump on the knuckle of my right pointer finger. I figured it was a pimple, so I just scratched it until it scabbed. I found another, larger, more painful one on my pinky of the same hand a few days later, as well as one on my big toe. And today I noticed I have at least 7 more distributed on my feet. They itch a little, but mostly hurt whenever I walk or they are rubbed. At first I thought they were warts, but it is impossible to get that many warts, at the same time. I also thought they were hives, but they never went away. I have been wearing flip flops lately, and when I noticed them today I changed into boots, and they continued to get worse. I'm not sure what they are or if I should go see a doctor.

Hi there!

Well, without a detailed description or a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of the lesion. Possibilities that may need to be considered include warts, infections, inflammations, allergic reaction, a few primary skin conditions etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician or a dermatologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
