Out of nowhere, two tiny pin prick red dots appeared on the side of my foot just up from my big toe. It has grown to six tiny dots close together. I am diabetic. Does this warrant a doctors appointment. what are they?

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

These red dots on your feet may very well be connected to your diabetes. It is considered a sign of bad blood circulation - something common in diabetics. It does warrant a doctor's appointment so please put a call in.

I hope this helps and thanks for writing!
