itch or pain? When did you notice it? Are you aware of anything which might have triggered it? Any medical problems? Any medications?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Notice it about two months ago. Doesn't really itch or burn. And no medication
Expert:  khagihara replied 4 months ago.

It seems to be a genial wart or inflammation from friction (more likely). You should try over-the-counter 0.1% hydrocortisone cream. If it doesn't help, you should see a dermatologist.

to have a skin biopsy.

The "more likely " part is the inflammation or the warts

I also have to added that I added apple cider vinegar to the spots like two days ago. They look more puffy now then before
Expert:  khagihara replied 4 months ago.

The "more likely " part is the inflammation. Apple cider vinegar seems to have made the inflammation worse. Use over-the-counter 1% hydrocortisone cream at first.
