Having raised, red spots on foot. Skin getting harder. What are they and how to get cured?

I have 3 half moon things about 1/2 or slightly smaller, that appeared on my bottom of one foot the other day. When they first appeared they were raised and red, now they are more blended color with the rest of my foot but harder skin now. I guess the best way to describe them would be like small fairy rings. What are they?

Dermatologist 's  Response

It seems that you may be having corns on sole of foot.

The skin of lesions may be hard and thick.

They may be due to pressure on sole during walking.

There may be tendency to develop corn.

You apply salicyclic acid containing solution on the lesion.

Avoid to walk barefooted. Take rest

Take oral vitamin A capsule for long time.

However, you consult dermatologist.

I hope you got my answer.
