Apologies for the feet photo!
I've had these light brown patches on both my feet for over a year. They don't itch or hurt. I'd originally thought they were marks from my trainers but I no longer have them so.... anyone had similar?

Thanks so much.

Do you spend a lot of time kneeling on the floor? Small children perhaps? Or a job requiring lots of kneeling?
That often creates marks when the skin is always touching the floor.

I've had those in the past, only higher up, nearer the ankle. Does if feel rough to the touch? I always assumed it was friction. It happened at a time when I did a lot of drawing sitting on the floor and was a TA, so that ties in with what Lavenderpurple said.

I do have two young children so that makes sense. Always clearing up etc. Maybe that's it... I'll try exfoliating them and see what happens!

Thank you

Yes I had those for years until kneeling on the floor became too painful...I now have a dodgy hip and beautifully smooth feet!

I also have a dodgy left hip! Only early 40's falling apart... grin
