Question: Hi, My baby (11 months old) has been crawling for about 2-3 months now. Of late, he has developed marks on little toes on his feet (pics attached). At the moment, these marks do not seem large and do seem to cause any discomfort to him while crawling. Are these marks related to his crawling or is there something else that we need to be worried about?

Brief Answer:
These are pressure marks - nothing to worry about

Detailed Answer:
Hello...these are pressure marks and smoothening of skin due to pressure due to body weight while crawling. Nothing to worry about them at all. They will disappear once the kid starts walking.
But just an observation - he is having dry skin on the dorsum of his foot.
I suggest you use emollients like - Atogla thrice a day for a period of 6 weeks
