    Red soles of feet - is this normal?

    I noticed that the soles of my feet are very red. There is a noticeable line between the bottom of my foot and the top of my foot going from red to pale white. I noticed this a while ago and thought nothing of it but today I have become fixated on it.

    Iím really worried that this means there is something wrong. I thought it was maybe just the blood flow from getting up and walking around this morning but they have stayed the same colour all day - red. Now Iím concentrating on my feet and they are a tiny bit pins and needly so naturally worried I have a neurological condition/diabetes. Other than that there is no pain or swelling or anything.

    Does anyone else have the same?

    From looking back at old pictures in some of them I have red heels and feet. Iíve never really noticed it before and it seems very red today. Maybe this is just a variation of colouring? My palms are not red. In any case it looks really unsightly!

    Mine are like this if I've been walking for a while, but it will only be the parts that were touching the pavement ie not the instep. They return to a normal colour after I get back home. I think what you're describing is normal.
    If you are one of the lucky souls allowed to enter NZ at this time please remember two things:

    1. We did the hard months in lockdown abiding by rules for you to get here.
    2. No one gives a shit if you prefer white towels or hotels with sea views.
    You're in quarantine for fourteen days ...obey the rules.

    If you want to stare at your feet, grab some sesame oil and give yourself a massage - your body will thank you for it.
