Concerned: Does anyone know what these spots on my foot are?

For the past 2 days I had a pain in my throat whenever I swallowed, this has since eased off now and is going (thankfully) and then today I noticed these small, slightly raised spots on the top of my right foot. They aren't sore and they don't itch and my foot is the only location on my body where they are. I don't have any other symptoms that I've noticed and I don't know if they're linked to the pain I had in my throat. Could anybody shed some light on to what they could be? I'll keep an eye on them and see if they get better or worse and if I get any more.

Hello and welcome to EHF,

I appreciate your concern,

It's hard to say anything for sure what they could be without examining the area first hand or atleast see an image.
I don't think any such rash on the foot is related to pain in your throat.
You should keep an eye on them,if they spread,starts to hurt or burn,itch or ooze,change it's colour, shape or texture then you must visit a dermatologist for a thorough physical examination of the area to find out the cause and he can treat it accordingly.

I hope this is helpful,

Wishing you the best of health.
