Bumps on feet, stings and hurt. Family history of diabetes. Cause for bumps?

I ve had two bumps on the bottom of my feet .. one on each foot .. left foot, it is on my big toe .. on the right foot, it is on the bottom of my foot but not on a pressure point. Diabetes runs in my family but no signs with me but this scares me because my father has had to get his toe amputated and might have to get the other one on the other foot done the same... please help, it stings, hurts but you can barely tell there s a bump there until you touch it and it hurts.. can t stand on it long or it starts stinging and hurting..

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

Based on the description, the bumps on the bottom of your feet could be a CORN or a CALLOSITY.

Use of Poor fitting or ill fitting shoes is the commonest cause of both the conditions. Usually no treatment is necessary.

Steps to be taken to prevent or treat are as follows -
* Wearing comfortable shoes and socks
* Wearing nonmedicated corn or callus pads
* Gradually rubbing it away
* Moisturizing your skin

If you are concerned, approach a dermatologist for further management.

Hope this information is helpful. Good day
