Hello and welcome to JustAnswer,
how old are you and has a physician told you what these spots are?
51 and no
do you have any medical problems and do you spend a lot of time in the sun.... particularly with your ankles exposed to the sun?
are you there?
i am lot on my feet and overwieght i am losing weight and exercising
take a look at THESE PICTURES HERE
i have lost 38 pounds on the way to loose 36 more
does this look familiary?
good for you!
what is familary
they are bleed capilariies i think
okay, but did you click on the link to see the pictures?
I think they are probably not age spots which are shown in the pictures
can you click on it and tell me if those are what you are seeing on your ankles?
they are not sir
so they are red like capillaries...
and you are losing a lot of weight
and I think you are probably right
these are, perhaps, spider veins, as we call them....
and there IS something you can do
if you have small capillary marks or spider veins in your ankles there is an in -office procedure that a vascular surgeon or dermatologist can do to eliminate them and it is simply to inject them with normal saline.... salt water.....
it may take one or two treatments, but it works well, assuming this is what you have
i took picture let me send this to you
that's fine, though it does tend to be complicated to make it work....
give it a shot
pictures of spider veins
the picture is pretty low so it's hard for me to day
but this does not look like spider veins and does not look like age spots
