    Pictures of the feet may help with opinions. Some people like to try soaking twice a day with epsom salts, and Tricide Neo is another product used by some. The quickest solution is to do surgery on the footpad to remove the scab and sqeeze out the solid cheese-like pus plug. Here are a couple of links to help you:
