I think it's because you momentarily stop the blood flowing to that region so it looks lighter in colour.

hmmm and maybe it causes little lumps because of the thicker tissue there? it reminds me of cellulite hahaha

The lumps could be signs of calcified tissue, are they hard or soft?

I am no Doctor but I thouht that those were blood capilaries being very close to the surface....I have them also....I almost always have cold feet!

I wonder if it has to do with Raynaulds syndrome
I was reading somewhere about the capilaries looking sometinglike that in patients with this problem...

Maybe someone can give you some expert advise and let us both know.. as I am still not positive if its the same thing I was reading for myself ..

Are these lumps on the surface of the skin or inside? There are no spots when you don't apply pressure right?

yer, its fine normally, and i sit on the edge of my bed doing hair and make up, and as i rest mt foot on the corner of the bed frame, the corner digging into the sole of my heal, these appear, its actually lumpy too, not just colouration, been bugging me for years iv noticed it other times too.
if that didnt make sense i wont take offence lol

Right click the picture and then open it with Microsoft Photo Editor, if you have it. Then resize the image so that it is small enough.

Me too...on the cold thing..I think It is common problem people get..the raynaulds...The bumps I have and have also seen in many peoples feet.

The palms of my hands get those spots also when pressure is applied.
