Are they puffy?  Probably "Interdigital cysts".   

If they're oozy keep 'em clean and put antibiotic cream on them - till one of the "pro's" can log on and answer!   He might need a visit to the vet.

Winston used to get those all the time.  What worked best for us was to soak them in epsom salts.

I agree...soaking them in epson salts works great as does a little Preparation H.  It helps with the swelling.

Rita gets them once in awhile. As soon as I notice one I put some desitin ointment on and that dries it up pretty quickly. 
Be yourself. No one is better qualified!
