abnormal skin growth on foot

recently i found that there was a pocket of fluid embedded under a bump of skin, i've had those before and i cut them off and the fluid comes out and they heal, but sometimes i miss them and they heal by themselves,

however, there was one that didn't and now it's become an abnormal skin growth
it look like a bump on the skin, circular, dome shaped, and has no fluid and hurts if i poke it real deep, but does not hurt if i simply touch it, it forms a thick layer of skin on the top, and when i use salicylic acid to burn it off, the underlying layer is a red bump and i don't know what to do about it

ps: it is not any skin condition i can identify
please share you opinions

From the sounds of it @ouch, my boyfriend seems to have the same thing on the bottom of his foot... its simply a bump and there is no pain unless pressed rather hard. Over time, he developed a blister on top of it and with my master surgical exploration, the entire bump seems to be filled with puss. Now, there is a small red bubble and a rather deep hole in his foot... I stumbled across this thread looking for the same answers you are. Sorry I couldn't be of more help but now you know you're not alone.

Have your doc check you for a ganglion cyst. It can only be removed by surgical means....hope it helps.
