Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thank you for using HCM to post your question.

I read carefully your question and I understand your concern.

It looks like might have happened a temporary problem with circulation in your feet, expecially if you have the red rash in both your feet. I believe it will go away soon.

Keep your feet elevated.
Massage them if possible.
If not better when you read this mail then send a photo here so I can have a look at them. Check if you have varicose veins in case they are not visible in the photo.
Also let me know if you have any medical problem like diabetes or high blood pressure. Your age its important too.

As I said I will get cleared in the possible diagmoses when you send a photo and give me some more information.

So, looking forward to your follow up question.

Regards,
Dr.Papaqako
