Suggest remedy for spots in feet

My 7 year old son has a few spots on the soles of his feet. One is on the ball of his foot and looks a little like a corn. It is flaky in the center, and red and inflamed around the edges. The others are on his heels. They are dark red and rough. Do you have any idea what this could be? Could it be some sort of fungal infection?

Hello,

The symptoms seem to be related to corn. I suggest using to soak your foot in warm water. Make sure the corn is fully submerged for about 10 minutes or until the skin softens. File the corn with a pumice stone. A pumice stone is a porous and abrasive volcanic rock that's used for sloughing away dry skin. Apply lotion to the corn. I also suggest to use corn pads.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
