Suggest remedy for black painful spots on heels

Hi, my husband has tiny black spots on both his heels which are very painful when walking and laying down. He uses an anti fungal spray before bed and in the mornings which does give him some relief but he's always in some degree of pain. He's had them for months and they don't seem to be clearing up. Can you suggest anything that may do the trick. Thank you.

Hi are you sure that these are fungal spots and not the corns so please check it with the skin specialist if its corns then you have to use salicylic acid paint on them or other creams to get rid of them last thing is to get them removed.
