Skin getting rough with pain between fingers with discoloring. Is it skin infection?

I noticed a small patch of skin (the size of a penny,between my thumb and index fingers) is getting rough with mild pain. It feels like some sort of skin infection with a slight discoloring(just a little more red than the normal skin tone.). The taxture looks like a corn or callus(but I am sure it is not because no presure was applied in that area of my skin), can you help? thank you in advance!

Hi,

It seems that probably the lesion you have is verruca.

It is contagious viral skin disease.

There is tough,rough and slightly elevated lesion.

The treatment is simple.

Electrocauery under local anaesthesia may be done by expert.

Chemical cautery by TCA is other modality of treatment.

You consult dermatologist.

I hope you got my answer.

Thanks.
