Hi gpoling
Welcome to healthcare Magic!
With the appearance you have described I think you are having an infection in your foot surface.
It could have started by an inadvertent injury or a prick that went un-noticed and got infected.
You should get examined as soon as possible and get treat accordingly.
Wish you a great health!
