Well, I've been almost everywhere, searching for what this might be.
It's some sort of rash, that usually appears on the edges of my feet, and on/in between the toes. It does not appear on the sole, nor does it spread 'inwards' very much (about 2-3cm from the outer edge).

I can also get it in between my fingers as well (Not on the palm, nor back of my hand).

It appears to only appear in summer (subsides early autumn, and disappears completely for winter).

They are about 0.5mm to 1mm in diameter, and do not itch as long as I do not scratch it. It does not cause any discomfort, and some are filled with some kind of pus. And they do not cause the skin to dry, or crack.

They appear mainly below the ankle, and around the toes.

Aside from my feet and occasionally, hands, they do not appear anywhere else.

Please help me with this, it's really *REALLY* annoying me.

Thanks!
