If you have poor circulation, why do you get spots on your legs?

Depends on the cause: Patients with venous circulation problems will get "spots", usually brownish discoloration or small veins, around the ankle. This comes from increased pressure in the veins that causes small amount s of blood to escape into the tissue. Arterial problems usually have non healing sores not spots on their foot or toes and occasionally blue or red discoloration when they hand their foot down

Hard to say: Without seeing the "white spots" you are talking about. For all you know it could just be normal physiologic changes in the skin. But, if you are concerned, please consult with your physician.

White spots in skin on legs chest and back. Suggest remedies?

White spots on skin: Many times these white spots are from a fungal infection. My patients get some relief slowly with a daily dose of Fluconazole or ketoconazole. I often recommend a ten day prescription for this.

Why do I get tiny white spots on my legs after standing a period of time?

Uncertain: It may have something to do with circulation. You could check with the dermatologist and see if they can assess the correct diagnosis. Things like location of the spots, size of the spots, how many, are they warm or cold, are all important aspects.

Very: Very difficult to tell without a clinical examination so I would see a dermatologist. Perhaps they are seborrheic keratoses, specifically the "stucco keratoses" variant. See a picture of a pigmented version at the link below. I hope that helps.

I have white spots all over my legs and a doctor put me on valisonewill this help at all?

Depends: Lots of things can cause white spots on your legs and it's impossible to say without seeing them. Valasone might help, just don't use it very long since it can cause thinning of the skin. You need a recheck in a couple of weeks if the spots don't inprove.

Tiny white spots on my legs-are they from shaving, tanning, or both? How do I get rid of them?

Tiny white spots on my legs-are they from shaving, tanning, or both? How do I get rid of them?

Tinea versicolor: A common skin fungus called tinea versicolor can prevent the sun from tanning those areas. If that is the case, treatment with a topical antifungal medication can eradicate the fungus. However, the whiteness will remain until your next sun exposure. It characteristically looks like white freckles.
