    Hello and thank you for your question. Sounds like you are describing porokeratosis which are “seed corns” and a result of pressure on the foot. The best way to address them is to shift or balance pressure in the foot. This can be done with orthotics or custom inserts. If you shave them or cut them out they will return unless the actual cause is addressed. I hope this helps.
