Recurring pus filled bumps on the foot. What is the cause?

About a week ago the center of my right foot hurt I looked at it and it was a bump with puss I took all the pus out soaked it cleaned it aired it out. A day or so later there was another bigger pus right under my index toe treated it the same. Now there was one on the right side of the same foot treating it the same way. Now around that It feels like smaller bumps are forming. What could this be?

Welcome to HCM
What you have described are multiple abscess may have formed from injury which you may have not noticed and sometimes it may be just tight shoe.
These abscess may have pockets and surface at different place so please visit a Surgeon who will examine and proper systemic antibiotics and anti inflamatory drugs may be required to cure apart from dressing also if pocket of pus is there a Inscision and drainage of pus may be done.
If it spontaneous and recurrent a blood sugar level must be checked to rule out Diabetes.
Take care
Good luck to you
