Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Have you been tested for diabetes. Any high blood pressure. Get an AV Doppler to look for circulatory disturbance. Do you smoke. Have you started using a new pair of sandals, leather shoes which can mean severe allergic contact dermatitis as well. Better to show to a Dermatologist to rule it out. Avoid sun exposure. Drink enough of water.
