Pic of sores/spots on Ankle.
I am a 40 year old man who has really never been to a doctor in about the last 15 years, because I have been fairly healthy. However for about the past 6 months I have been drinking a beer nightly. I am concerned because I have noticed two major things appearing on my feet and legs. On my ankles, I am developing little red spots that are growing into bigger sores. The skin over these spots is VERY thin and appears to look "wet". It's so thin that if I pass my finger over it too hard it looks like the skin will be broken. I also noticed many more of the tiny red spots that are not visible yet on camera, but that is exactly how the bigger "spots" started out, so it means many more of these sores are getting ready to form. At first I thought it might have been caused by seat from my shoe or socks, but I have tried to clean the area daily with rubbing alcohol, change shoes, and socks, and also use a antfungal foot powder to prevent my feet from sweating, but that has not helped..
