White blotchy spots on bottom of feet that causes numbness. Any thoughts?

I keep getting white blotchy spots on the bottom of my feet . Areas go completely white and numb for a period of time. I thought it was bc I was cold , however it happened tonight during a work out. I am not a smoker, 39 yrs old, 5 6 approx 115 lbs in fairly decent shape so not sure why this keeps happening. Any thoughts?

Hi ,

Welcome to HCM.

Thanks for writing in.

the white spots and numb feet can be due to leprosy or frost bite.

Leprosy is a infectious disease treatable with antibiotics.

Also a vascular insufficiency can cause such intermitttent symptoms.

Consult a qualified dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Hope this helps.

Wishing you good health.
