These bruise things started to show up on my feet in 2005 when i was 15 and just got worse as time went on.
I've been to 3 different doctors about them and got 2 different diagnoses. I don't feel confident about any of them.
-tingling & numbness when sitting in a chair for long periods of time.
-my feet feel cold a lot.
-they don't turn white when i press on them.
From the symptoms and picture, it looks like vascular disease of the peripheries or stasis eczema. Stasis dermatitis is a rash of the lower legs which is due to poor return of blood to the heart. My sincere advice would be to consult a dermatologist as well as a vascular surgeon and get the diagnosis confirmed.
I hope that helps. Take care and please do keep us posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
