red spots under the skin on my feet and ankles

for years ive noticed ive got little red dots on my feet and they size of space they take up keeps getting bigger. mostly on the inside top of my foot. my dad has schamberg's disease and his is all the way up to nearly his knees now and really orangy. i was wondering if maybe i had the same thing? could it be possible?

I don't really know about your dad's condition, the only thing I know of is that high blood pressure can cause red dots that look like pin pricks on the feet and ankles.

Re: red spots under the skin on my feet and ankles

i dunno if i have blood pressure.just that i have anxiety which prolly means i prolly do have high blood pressure?
schamberg's disease is a weakening of the blood vessels most commonly in the legs.spreads slowly.and its an orangey colour because of the iron in the blood.but he has vitaminD difficiancy too.
its just because its became more noticable recently
so ive started to get a little worried.because it took near 10years for docs to diagnose schamberg's disease.
