They've been on the sole of the R foot for a week.

They become redder overnight and fade to 66% through the day

They don't move or change size but 6 appeared over the first night and now there's 9

Those pictured are the most prominent - others seem to be significantly less prominent.

They are not sore nor raised

District nurse didn't recognise them and GP is going to treat as dermatitis - but I'm suspicious! Any better suggestions ?

    It is quite difficult to see the photo but I wonder whether it is Pompholyx. Is it itchy?

    Have you looked at Derm net NZ?

    Thanks mrsmop for info and direct link. On that link there are a pair of feet. On the top foot, just below and to the left of the little toe is a red sort of circular mark - they're like that - so not like the other images. Anti-fungals seem to have cleaned them up now though - so still a bit of a mystery !

    I'm glad the antifungals have helped, long may it last!
