A dark blue or purple coloration of the skin on your feet could be an indication that you have a condition that is known as acrocyanosis. This is a fairly painless disorder that impacts the arteries that supply the blood that the skin needs at the hands and the feet. If you are dealing with such a condition, it is important that you look to the help of Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic for acrocyanosis treatment in Edmonds.
The smaller arteries that carry oxygen and a wealth of nutrients throughout your blood into the extremities can sometimes become blocked. Once they are blocked, the skin is not going to get enough oxygen that then translates into a darkened color with blue and purple tones.
Even though acrocyanosis is a condition that is known for being benign, there could be a more serious medical condition that is underlying and festering elsewhere in the body. There could be a connective tissue disorder or something going on with your cardiovascular system that needs to be addressed. The symptoms that come along with acrocyanosis will most often include discoloration, cold temperature, moist or sweaty skin and a good bit of swelling.
