She has these weird growths on both “thumbs” lol! No one else has them and they’re no where else on her feet. What are they? I’ve searched and can’t find anything that looks the same so hopefully someone can help!

She also has scaly leg mites as evidenced by the lifted scales. Treatment is usually soaking legs in warm and soapy water, drying them and rubbing in a good oil, such as mineral, castor, or vaseline weekly for a few weeks until new scales grow in.

Edited to say, that I only see early scaly leg mites in the first picture with slight raising of the scales, but not in the other pics.
