purple marks on feet

I've had purple marks on my feet since I was around the age of 6 or 7 I'm now 30 and have been to many docs with this issue however there's never an answer. The purple marks are moving further toward my leg and being a female I'm really starting to worry the last thing I want is for it to move onto my legs. The purple marks are raised slightly they don't hurt, itch and its not dry ski, its only on the tops of my feet and for years it didn't move now in the last few years its moved and is now about an inch from my ankle this marks are blotches are uneven and worse on one foot then the other. When my feet are rubbed you can't tell they are there also if they are elevated and warm the markings aren't able to be seen. I think its some kind of circulation problem but I have no idea! When other people see my feet they think I hurt myself because it looks like a bruse. It's only purple there's no green or yellow color and there's no spots. Please someone help thanks

I have this as well no one had been able to diagnose it until recently (FINALLY!) It's called Granuloma Annulare. When you google it, some really crazy pictures come up that look nothing like mine and yours (from what you describe) so I didn't think that was really what I had when my doc. diagnosed it but looking further there are a few pictures like my foot. Mine are purple and just slightly raised and started at the tops of my feet and have moved up and are now on my ankle. Hoping they don't move up anymore! My doc told me the cause is unknown and theres nothing you can really do about it. It has nothing to do with circulation either it turns out (I thought that was the case too since when I rub it, it goes away). Nothing to really worry about health-wise....maybe just about it moving up and looking bad. Hope this helps! I know its really late but better late than never! )
