In brief: Maybe

If the dark spots are towards your ankle they may be skin changes associated with venous insufficiency.
These can lead to ulcers of the skin over time. Go to miamibeachvein .Com to learn more. Find a doctor at phlebology.Org.

In brief: Blood in skin

See doctor for evacuation of spots and underlying veins.
This can represent bleeding into skin form varicose veins or blood thinning editions. If possible medically, it is indicated to be evaluated as to surgery for the veins. This can often be done with laser as an outpatient office procedure. See a vascular surgeon who performs laser vein ablation.
