Diabetes And Brown Spots On The Feet
I see Spots.: With not much to go on, there is not much to say. Consider, infection, such as fungal. Environmental, such as staining, dirt etc., could be remotely responsible. I think the best bet, however, involves a melanin hyperpigmentation issue. The nature of which can only be determined after a thorough evaluation.See 1 more doctor answer
Many possibilities: It could be a fungal or bacterial infection. It could be bruising due to tight shoes or trauma. It could be a pigmentation of the underlying skin. It could be a skin disorder or melanoma, or it could be one of a number of many other possibilities. Have your feet checked out by a professional.
Aging spots: These are typical normal aging spots located on the bottom due to small blood vessel capillary trauma over time. This is usually prevalent with diabetics, etc... If the spots are new and or itch or become raised, you need to see your podiatrist right away.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Melanosis, a darkening of skin from increased melanin production, has been reported in smokers. It is commonly seen more where nicotine has direct contact, like in the mouth and around the mouth, but can occur anywhere. If people stop smoking, they tend to fade away, but they don't always completely clear. See a dermatologist to be sure, especially if the areas have changed- rule out melanoma.
Many possibilities: There are many things that may cause a discoloration of the skin. Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections and cancer can cause a discoloration of the skin. Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash or a discoloration of the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.

May need a doctor: If a person gets small brown spots on the bottom of his feet, sometimes they are warts. Other times they are a fungus. If fungus, twice a day over-the-counter lotrimin (clotrimazole) af for 2-3 weeks may solve the problem. If warts, a primary care doctor or dermatologist will likely have to freeze them off. A visit to the doctor can help get a diagnosis, and see if the spots aren't something else.

Clearly, if there is a concern do not hesitate to seek out a consultation with a primary care physician.See 1 more doctor answer
