    Never had this problem before. On the ball of my right foot, i.e. the bottom of the foot, there started to appear blister size pimples filled with a watery pus. If I pierce the skin, the water would drain out, and after removing the loose skin, a scab would form, which I thought fixed the problem. But then another pimple would appear in a slightly different location, which I pierce, a scab forms. And another pimple appears...Doesn't hurt at all.

    Anyone ever have this problem, and what causes it? I don't think it's caused by rubbing like getting blisters on the hand, and it happens even when I'm wearing just regular street shoes for the past 3 - 4 days without having played any tennis.

    Any ideas? Or should I go see a foot doctor?

    How big are the blisters? Sounds like poison ivy or athlete's foot. When I got athlete's foot, I got pus-filled blisters. They itched, though. Try a steroid cream and see if it helps.

    I am not a doctor, but I do have messed up feet.

    I get the same problem during the summer when I go barefoot more often. It usually spreads along most of the bottom of my foot, and often has a yellowish tint to it, which makes me think it's some form of athlete's foot or another fungus. Lamisil or another cream should clear it up in a week or two.

    Also, popping the "blisters" tends to make it spread along your foot faster.

    Thx

    PB and Gmedio: Thanks for your suggestions. I'll try out this Lamisil or a steroid cream. The blisters are about one-third or one-fourth the size of a US dime coin. Not piercing or popping the blisters make good sense, so I'll be sure not to do that anymore.

    solved problem

    Thanks to this board, solved my foot problem. Used a cream called Mycil, which contains tolnaftate, for curing fungus which causes athlete's foot problem. Thanks to those who responded and offered suggestions.
