Are these verrucas/i? What about Footner?

I keep getting them on my right foot, they come up like a little bubble with a dark spot in the middle. These have all been frozen so look a little different.
I've been treating them with Scholl freeze treatment but new ones just keep popping up. It's been going on for a couple of months.
I'm about to try Footner exfoliating socks to see if that gets rid of them, I have a lot of dead skin from freezing my foot as well so want to get rid of that.
Do we think these are verrucas/verruci?
Has anyone tried Footner whilst they have a verruca?
Shall I just say 'what the hell' and give it a go?

At least tell me my foot won't drop off?

Do they itch? Do you get clear fluid if you pop them with a needle? I've got similar and I think it might be a special eczema called pomphlyx (not sure of spelling).

No itching, haven't tried popping them, just the deep freeze. Will have a look into the eczema.

No they don't look like verrucas. They look like something I get on my hand although I can't remember the name of them!

I don't think those are verrucas.

I'd use the Footner regardless - it didn't do anything to my (actual) verruccas. More is the pity.

Update. I have Footnered.
No stinging or heat irritation on the site of the frozen non-verrucas.
I had a mild stinging between toes on other foot so took feet out of crocs ready to remove and wash off, but it cooled down without the shoes so I carried on for the hour.
Do we want a pic? I'll add one for reference in case anyone else has similar.
All the dead peeling bits are where I have frozen the things.
I'm just hoping that what ever it is gets neutralised by the chemicals.

Great. See what happens in the next few days smile

Well the good news is that the Footner appears to have stopped whatever it was in its tracks, I have no new ones and what's left is looking a bit dried up and peeling...
The bad news is that I now have itchy water blisters on my hands! They don't look the same as the things on my feet as there is no redness but it would tie in with your eczema suggestions sad.
Tempted to try Footner on hands now...
