See below: Liver spots are not commonly seen on the soles of the feet and more likely simply moles. If you have noticed an increase of hyperpigmented/dark irregularly shaped spots on your feet i encourage you to see a dermatologist or foot specialist who may want to biopsy these spots. ...Read more

Cold feet: You don't mention if your feet warm with socks or under a blanket. If they do not , seek medical attention right away. The dry skin can be related to circulation as can the discoloration. See your podiatrist or your dermatologist . ...Read more

Allergic reaction: If the rash appeared after taking Ibuprofen and not before, then it can be an allergic reaction to it. Some people develop hives from such medications called nsaids. You may need to take an antihistamine to help you with the rash but i would avoid all nsaids, until you are evaluated by a doctor. If you need to take something for a fever, from now on take Acetaminophen instead. ...Read more

Moleskin: In areas of pressure, try using moleskin a soft sueded covering with one side adhesive, this may help. Consider the type and fit of shoe wear as improper fit or inappropriate shoe/boot type may be the source of irritation. Good luck. ...Read more

Keratoses: Keratotic (so-called "stucco") lesions are common on the feet and elsewhere on the body. They are not dangerous but certainly are annoying. Try an otc lotion, such as lac hydrin or amlactin, with Lactic Acid or salicylic acid in it, to soften the top layer of skin. If those lotions aren't strong enough a dermatologist can prescribe one of a number of stronger preparations. ...Read more
