Lesions are an abnormal growth of the skin, so typically the affected patch looks very different from the healthy skin around it. Frequently the growth is discolored, either darker or redder. The spot can be flat or raised, rough, scaly, dry, or even pus-filled. Some lesions are harmless, like freckles and flat moles. Others can be side effects of irritants, like hives or acne, or even symptoms of serious conditions, like psoriasis. Sometimes the spot can actually cause permanent or life-threatening complications, like ulcers and malignant melanoma.
If you notice an unusual spot on the skin of your feet that doesn’t look or feel like the surrounding skin, don’t ignore it and hope it goes away on its own. Contact Foot & Ankle Associates in Houston, Sugar Land, or Missouri City, TX, for an appointment to have your spot evaluated and treated.
