I am 60 yrs old & had a reaction to a medication that caused a severe reaction of pustular psoriasis from the bottom of my feet to the top of my head, the rash caused me to loose several layers of skin. I was hospitalized for 27 days, even though the rash is no longer there, I have pain in my hands & feet the worse is my feet. Is this pain permanent or how long before I,m pain free.

Hello, it is almost two days that I noticed some tiny bumps at the bottom of my feet, located exactly in the middle of the feet. When I touch them they are a bit painful. At first they looked like insect bits with a few millimetres apart, but now it seems that some sort of liquid is developing under the skin becoming yellow/red. BTW, their location is not a place that receives pressure when I walk.
Any help in identifying this problem is greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
