Recurring pus filled bumps

For the past few years I have had recurring pus filled bumps on my foot that typically last a couple of weeks then scab over brown and peel. It itches right before the bumps form then causes no other sensations. Ive noticed it happens mainly in the spring and  always in the summer. If I peel the bumps before theyve healed I notice many small holes it can be up to 6 or 8. These bumps appear under either side of my ankle near the heel/sole of my feet on the sides and usually form in groups of around 4 or 5 then just go away and re appear in different areas on my foot usually on the sole. My guy gets grossed out by them, its really embarassing and makes me feel bad about my self.. any advice? Im a 21 y/o female, I noticed these bumps when I was pregnant a few years ago and they have come up again and again since then. When I google pictures of dyshidrotic eczema that is how my foot looks only less severe. I have pics but dont know how to add them on here..

sounds like contact dermatitis or vessicular tinea pedis.
go see a dermatologist or podiatrist for evaluation and proper medication
