    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Growths on feet
    nfactor posted:
    I often get small growths on my feet that seem to appear in the same areas and tend to go away in a few weeks. They are uncomfortable when pressure is applied and the biggest will grow to about the size of a pea.

    nfactor responded:
    I need help identifying what they are. They tend to mostly go away by the time I can get an appointment with my primary care phys.
    Chris_WebMD_Staff replied to nfactor's response:
    Hi and welcome,

    You are welcome to post this picture and your concerns on our Skin Problems & Treatments Community.
    But ultimately you are going to need to see your doctor for a diagnoses, as that cannot be done on the internet. Perhaps you can print this picture and take it to your doctor if it should clear up by the time you get to the appointment.
    I hope that helps.
    Good Luck and Good health,
    WebMD Community Staff
