brown-dark brownish discoloration to sole of childs foot
My son is 8yr. old and I have noticed a dark brown discoloration to the bottom of his foot. It is about 1.5cm in lenght and o.5cm in width. The brown spot has been there for about 2 weeks. The brown discoloration is flat, it is not painful, it does not itch, and the skin is intact. At first I thought it was dirt and when I attempted to clean the sole of his foot it did not come off.The brown discolorationn is still there. What can this be?
