Foot Issue - White Dots

Two days ago, I noticed white dots appearing on the bottom of my feet.
My neighbor told me they are plantar warts.
A doctor at prompt care [who didn't look to certain] said they had to be warts.
My friend said they are "foot corns" because he had them himself.
They don't really hurt when i touch them and I am seeing a new white protrusion each day.
I use moleskin which helps ease the discomfort, but I am worried at the rate they are spreading.

Anyone have any idea what these are?  Thanks.

(yes, that's precisely what they look like to me, I've had them on rare occasion, they've gone away on their own)

Warts tend to come and (eventually) go on their own, keeping their own schedule.  There's various ways of discouraging them (such as taping some aspirin over one).

However, if you're a diabetic, any foot condition deserves respect (as injuries are hard to detect and to treat), so consulting a medical practitioner is highly recommended if you're seeking a safe solution.

I'm not diabetic, but do they look like warts?  They don't particularly hurt.

It was diagnosed by a podiatrist Doctor as a type of fungus.
I need to soak it with a medication and use a type of fungal powder daily to dry it out.
Luckly I got it checked out because he said it spreads quite fast over a couple days.  It can also end up in the groins, armbits, behind the knees, etc which is when it gets way worse.

They look like tiny blisters...is there liquid in them?  Do they seem like blisters?  If they break, keep the skin clean with a  bandage or covering, because open skin can get infected.  Maybe it is an allergic reaction to something? Did you recently walk on something with bare feet?  It might be "contact dermatitis."  If it itches, it could be an allergy to something you walked on barefoot...
