My 6yrs old daughter is complaining about very sore feet. All I see though is small red blothes on the bottom and sides of her heels.?
Heel pain: Sounds like you may have bilateral heel spurs or plantar fasciitis. If the pain is more towards the heel it could be a spur. If it is more mid foot - the plantar faciitis is more likely. As we sleep the tissues that create the arch of our feet contract ever slightly - first thing in the morning when we get up - there is a "springing effect that will cause pain. See your doctor for more advice. ...Read more
Very sore left heel after a spinning session. Specially when I bend down and stretch or pull my foot upwards.?
Plantar Fasciitis: It sounds like acute plantar fasciitis. It can occur with exercise, especially if it's a new endeavor. It can also happen with repeated stress to the foot over a long period. The thick and fibrous plantar fascia gets stressed and strained, causing inflammation and pain. Rest, ice, massage, and anti-inflammatory medicine are good starts. See a doctor if it continues for more than a week. ...Read more

Not concerned about the pigmentation. Brown is beautiful!! ...Read more
