Black Patches Like Bruises On The Feet?
Hello doctor, I want to ask, it’s been a month on my feet like black patches that when pressed it will feel a little painful at first I thought it was just an ordinary scar but it hasn’t been gone for a month or two. Is this reasonable?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Scars can indeed leave a blackish rash on the skin. However, a scar alone should not cause pain, unless the scar is irritated or has a secondary infection, for example due to poor treatment.
Aside from scars, black spots on the feet and pain when pressed as you experience it may also be caused by other factors, such as clavus (fish eye), folliculitis (hair root infection), irritant contact dermatitis (skin inflammation due to contact with substances irritative), cellulitis, benign or malignant tumors with secondary infections, and so on.
If it feels very annoying, and does not go away for a long time, you should not leave this complaint without treatment. Check with yourself directly to the doctor or dermatologist to be evaluated more deeply trigger your complaints, including for example with a biopsy examination or other supporting tests.
In the meantime, to improve complaints, here are our suggestions:
Compress painful legs with warm water
Be diligent in bathing and washing your feet to keep them clean
When doing activities, always wear comfortable and clean footwear
Do not squeeze, squeeze, or gouge any spots that appear, especially with dirty hands
Hope this helps ...
