Hi. my boyfriend has some red pimples with like black heads on his left foot arch . There are like 6-7 next to each other. Some are red, some have black heads. They seem to be under the skin . As well next to it theres a small bit of dried skin which peels off. Could you suggest what it might be? I did google and looked at pictures but nothing looked like this. I think it itches as well.
