Red toe

Hi! I am a guys in my 20s, but lately i have noticed quite red toes, more red on the left toes then the other. I am very inactiv, and most of my days are in front of a computer. 

Anyways, the red toes are there when i am not moving my feets, and as soon as i try to massage the foot, it gets less red, or if i put the feet high up. 

What do u guys think it could be? Could it be poor circulation due to very inactiv, should i try training and see if it gets better?

    Note: even the healthiest people have autoimmune or genetic abnormalities.

    I wouldn’t worry, once again, bc you are not having any pain or burning it seems.

    Take a look at what your eating or meds your taking, if redness isn’t daily. 

    If it is, you can always Goto a podiatrist for an eval.

      Hey again.

      My redness is daily, but is normal when i have my feet high/higher up, then if i have them on the floor. 

      Can it be poor foot circulation due to my inactivity? I am not smoker, normalweighted and not drinking.

    Everyone has had a minor problem with a toe, foot, or ankle. Most of the time our body movements do not cause problems, but it's not surprising that symptoms develop from everyday wear and tear or overuse. Toe, foot, or ankle problems can also occur from injuries or the natural process of aging.

      Yes, but mine have been there for some weeks now, and its red all the time, i mean all the time, except when i have my feet high up, then it becomes very much normal, but as soon as i have them on the ground, they get very reed.

      What can it be? Poor circulation? Infection?
