Dermatologist 's  Response
Dark spots on the toes (palmar) side affecting two toes simultaneously could be due to some blunt trauma causing haematoma (blood clot). Blood vessels can weaken due to lupus. Corns is a possibility but rare cause they are of the same colour and wldny come up so acutely ( suddenly). Occasionally it clould be some unwanted growth. Also rule out diabetes and visit your Dermatologist asap

Hi,
One possibility is that you might have corns on both sites you mentioned.They are on the bottoms of your toes which are common site for corn.
Of course lupus to be ruled out.

My brother in law noticed a dark spot on the bottom of my foot today when I had my feet propped up. There is one that is a circle and another that is oblong along my heal. The oblong is on the outside of my heal the other circle spot is on the inside of my heal. They re dark purple. I have no pain in my feet. I did run a 10k this morning, but I don t know how long they ve even been there. When I apply pressure to the spots they don t change color. I can t feel anything under the skin. The circle one is pretty consistent in color. The oblong spot has 3 lighter spots toward the middle along the length of the spot. Any ideas on what would cause this? Can you bruise in your feet? It was a trail run with uneven ground.

I have a dark spot on the bottoms of both my feet. One is relatively small, it s been there for about 3-4 days And then today I noticed I have one on the heel of my other foot aswell. But this one is much larger... maybe about an inch wide. Just curious to what this could be. I definitely didn t get a heel bruise, I would have felt the pain with it. So I m rather confused, is it diabetes?
