Post Raynaud's Syndrome

A little confused about where to post this, but I figured you guys might have some insight...

Last summer I developed a strange, splotchy, brown discoloration all down my lower legs. I completely stopped tanning and it has faded, but it is still there.

I have Raynaud's syndrome and maybe that has something to do with it? I know this can occur with other conditions as well, so any info would be helpful.

Hi,

I know that diabetes and poor circulation can cause the type discoloration you have. Don't just write it off as Reynauds. It would be best to show the area to your doctor and tell him/her how it looked after sun exposure last summer. You may need to be tested and treated for the cause of the discoloration. If it turns out to be unimportant, you'll have the relief of knowing that. Good luck!

Barbara
