Skin on legs mushy like playdoh
Ken_Floccu posted:
Any thoughts? The skin on my lower legs, and not anywhere else is maliable like playdoh. I can push on it with my thumb (not very hard) for a few seconds and the indention created will simply stay there for several minutes. Socks with tight elastic can cause this indention all the way around my leg and will last for 20 mins after I remove the socks.
Mary Ruth Buchness, MD responded:
Dear Ken_Floccu,
It sounds like you have fluid accumulating in your legs. This can be due to many things, from varicose veins, to medications, to heart failure. So please go to see your doctor.
