Tiny round circles inside skin, the size of maybe a needle tip.

I've had a tiny clear circle inside my skin for a little over a year now on my thumb. I don't have any idea of what it could be, I thought at first it was a wart and tried to freeze it away, that had no effect on it. I've also tried to cut as much skin as I could from it with my fingernail clippers and it seems to be smack dab in the middle of my skin, as if I would have to cut that whole chunk of my skin out to get this clear circle out, when I cut away some top layers of skin the clear circle turns into what looks to be a tiny little hole.

I thought it was just on my thumb this whole time, and have just noticed that it's also on my right foot now, unlike my right thumb (which has only one clear circle) my foot has a large amount of them! Not of the pads of my feet but on the soft part of my skin, I'm so confused and cannot go around my home without socks fearing that I'll somehow give it to my 11 month old daughter. I also try not to touch my thumb to anything and sometimes put tape around it to maybe smother it, but it hasn't worked.

Psychologically it's effecting me for fear that I'll give it to someone else, I don't know if it's contagious or not, but I don't want to take the chance of someone else getting it from me. ALSO, my feet and hands are VERY dry, on the soles of my feet there are cracks and dry skin, and my hands are always dry but I also wash my hands A LOT.
