Venous stasis: Sounds like venous stasis. In other words fluid pooled into your feet and ankles from being on your feet for so long due to compromised circulation. Should have gone away after raising your feet above the level of your heart for a few hours as in bed.

No: Even though this may not be normal it is not necessarily anything to be gravely concerned about. The best way to evaluate this is to have a lower extremity venous ultrasound to make sure you do not have significant venous insufficiency (particularly in the deep venous system). We see bluish discoloration in people who have had clots in the deep veins and then subsequently develop reflux.

Walk/ergonomics: Get up and walk around more frequently. Check your chair to make sure your legs are not dangling from cutting off your circulation to the lower legs. Putting a stool under your chair will get the pressure off the back of the legs; or lower your chair to the floor. Don't forget to maintain ergonomics with your hands ton your keyboard and proper level for the monitor lest you creat strain in neck.

May need antifungals: Rashes are difficult to describe in words. If a person has recurrent pimples on places where regular acne doesn't occur, he likely has infection in skin glands and/or hair follicles. A primary care doctor or a dermatologist can evaluate and make a diagnosis. The doctors can prescribe oral antibiotics, antifungals, or creams/ointments as needed. Sometimes, bacteria are resistant to antibiotics.
