Soles of feet were mottled, red and white blotches appeared on massaging the feet. Reasons ?

I have recently qualified as a Foot Health Practitioner and was practising on my mother. On massaging her feet at the end of the treatment, I noticed on the soles of her feet were mottled, red and almost white blotches appeared and moving around as I massaged them. She has always smoked and has done so more regularly since my Dad died in February this year.

Thanks for writing to us.
The red and white mottled appearance is due to difference in the circulation in the area of the sole. This could be due to atherosclerotic changes in her blood vessels.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
