I have dark knuckles on my feet. What are options for lightening them? I've been advised bleaching cream & surgery, but don't know much about either

In brief: Dark knuckles

Before you just try something, see your podiatrist or dermatologist to determine the cause of the dark knuckles.

The best is to use retin a (tretinoin) to lighten the skin at the knuckles.
