These do look like pigment purpuric dermatoses
These are harmless spots that do not have symptoms. You should take Vitamin C supplements , reduce weight to prevent this from spreading.
These purpuras are small bleeding spots that remain in the dermis ( bleeding spots ) which will get absorbed on its own over time.
I would suggest you to keep the legs elevated at night while sleeping.
This condition does not manifest with any symptoms.
Do let me know if you have any further queries.
The weight tends to increase the pressure in the legs. This in turn increases the pressure in the small capillaries and arterioles causing them to burst into the skin and leaves behind these spots.
That is the precise reason the marks do not go away very fast .
You should take Vitamin C supplements in the meantime.
Use Vitamin C applications on the foot area to reduce the spots.
