Question callouses with holes!!!

Hello everyone,

Due to my job i always have rough skin on my feet, but just recently i have developed these weird callouses. At first i thought they were verucas cause they hurt alot, but now im not so sure.
The big momma one is a pretty big callous with a hole in the middle. I have tried to remove the dead skin, but the hole just gets a little bigger. It can be pretty painfull to walk on, and pretty nasty to touch. I also have a couple of other little holes, but they look alot smaller, but are still in the dry, thickened skin on my feet.

Has any one got any ideas what these are? Am i gonna have to go and see my doctor, or is it something i can treat myself?

cheers guys

Re: callouses with holes!!!

I'd have to recommend you make an appointment with a foot doc. It sounds like you might have some sort of fungus, especially if it is painful and nasty to touch. Get it checked out. -eko

Re: callouses with holes!!!

I had something that sounds very similar to that a few years back. I believe they'r called Plantars Warts. They do have a hole in the center and very painfull to walk on.

I went to a podiotrist and he froze them off. I had one rather large on with smaller ones here and there. I think he said it's some kind of fungal infection. The freezing was almost painless and much easier to walk afterwards.
