Hi there..

Thanks for writing in.

I would like some additional details:

1. When did you first notice the spots /blotches?
2. Is it present on both the feet?
3. Any history of fever?
4. Any history of trauma to the feet?
5. Any history of itching, warmth, pain or tenderness on or around the spots and blotches?
6. Any history of smoking, diabetes, hypertension or liver disease?
7. Any history of excessive sweating of the feet or exposure to moisture?
8. Would it be possible for you to upload the images?
9. Any family history of skin cancers or melanoma?

Please get back to me with the above details.
