I have been getting these pus filled bumps on my feet. They itch and they only appear on my feet every so often. I usually pop them to drain them. They keep reappearing. What is it? How do I get them? What can I do to make them go away and prevent them from reappearing?

In which part of the feet you are having this?

Do you have any disease like diabetes?
