red foot

anyone know what's wrong with the left feet?



the patient noticed that the foot (or feet coz the right foot is sometimes affected) gets red esp after a shower or walking. it's gets better on elevation of the foot. No pain but slightly sore when flexing the toes and swollen.

Are they your feet? Go to see doctor asap. Looks like allergic reaction or circulation problem.

weird that it's just one foot.. if it as both, then it should be coz of the hot water in the cold weather...

are there any edema on the hyperaemic foot?

Daddy: ok :p But surprisingly the feet are not as red as before ad. maybe becoz the weather is warmer now?

Rachel: yeah. I initially thought it could be the hot water but then even without contact with hot water, the feet turn red.

elims: haha. of coz it's true! if not i photoshopped it?? I read your blog, you are going to be a father soon! congrats!

Poh Wei: The left toes are slightly swollen. The right toe was swollen before but it has gone down. the foot feels warm on touch and is worse at night and also after exercise. The patient is otherwise well, no past medical history of heart disease or peripheral vascular disease.

i reckon it might be chillblains.

i've had it for 2 consecutive winters in australia and my right foot is almost always more swollen and red than the other foot...for some reason my doctor told me to put hemorrhoid cream on the affected areas...apparently improves blood circulation.

hope u get better! =)
