Your history points to a diagnosis which is either corn or verruca.
If it is at pressure points, then it fits more into corn. Reducing the pressure over those sites and using soft-sole footwear may be of some help. Scrapping, but by physician is also one of the treatment modalities. Salicylic acid
, Urea in higher concentration are also used.
Verruca is a viral disease caused by human papilloma virus
. The various treatment modalities are - topical salicylic acid and lactic acid, oral immunomodulators like levamisole
, and cryotherapy
, radiofrequency cautery etc.
Corn is non-contagious; verruca are contagious but are not hereditary, so the baby of your son will not get it untill it is inoculated by physical contact.
