Bit of a weird one but my daughters toe has gone purple but seems to keep changing colour slightly. It was red for a while and then went purple and now looks reddish again. Planning oh going to docs this week as also has a small purple ish bruise on her foot on top as well. Any idea appreciated!

That's odd. She hasn't knocked it?

Have you looked up Raynaud's? My friend's son has this but all of his fingers are that colour.

Is it painful? I get patches that look like this, they are chilblains as a result of raynauds.

No it's not painful but was itchy about 10 weeks ago. Thought maybe chilblains then but no idea how. Seems a long time since then to suddenly go purple now?! Feel bit silly going to docs but it's just a bit weird. Not knocked it and doesn't look like a normal bruise.

I’d go with chilblains then, mine were usually itchy and only occasionally painful too.

Could be a circulatory problem like raynauds if there is no obvious reason for them happening. flowers

I have a chilblain on my toe that started in December as just annoyingly itchy. It then went red/ purple after a while and it's only just going away now, so i think they can for stay a while.
