Hey, just wondering if anyone here has had a similar problem or knows what this might be...

All of the sudden I have developed very strange flesh-colored "bumps" on my ankles and feet. I have never had them before. They are more on the inside parts of my ankles and feet and vary in size. They don't hurt when I touch them. My first instinct was warts, but I've never had a wart in my life to compare it to. They aren't hard and round. But they don't have tons of give to them, and are more round than not. Anyway, could this be an infection? A wart? Or something from shoes I've been wearing? Just wondering...any input appreciated. Thanks.

It's going to be really, really to give you any information based on a description. Honestly, these could be warts, but it is so hard to tell over the net. Best bet: don't touch them (if they are warts, they will spread through physical contact) and contact a doctor to get them looked at.
