Patient : Within the past four months when I stand on my feet for long periods of time (like at work) my feet and ankles start to itch and then they swell up badly with red splotches and dark red leopard-like spots beneath the skin. The red swollen part is very warm to the touch. If I stay off of them for a day or two they get better until I have to stand on them for several hours again. What could be the cause of this?
