Anyone have a freckle on the bottom of their feet?

I have a freckle on the bottom of my foot that I've had forever....pretty sure I showed my Dermatologist it and she said normal. Well today I noticed a new freckle on the same foot, normal shape/color. For the heck of it I google "freckle on feet" and now I'm scared.......every site talks about melanoma on the bottom of feet and it's not common to have freckles/moles on the bottom of your feet. I made an appt today, but of course can't get in for 2 weeks. So I'm trying not to imagine the worst...but I'm a worry-wart. Anyone know anything about this?

No, I haven't heard anything about it being a bad sign or anything. But I know my DS13 has had a freckle on the bottom of his foot since birth. We've always called him freckle foot. LOL

If you've had it for a long time, and there's been no change, I would assume it's just a freckle. A rare freckle! You should be proud!

Could be a small birth mark too. I know a couple people with birthmarks on their feet, my sister being one of them. Not sure what the difference between birthmarks and freckles is aside from size though.

I actually have one on each foot, in the same spot on my heel...weird that they are rare! I have had mine since birth, stayed the same and are most certainly freckles.

DGD has one, she's had it since birth. The dr's told my DD22 it was not a big deal.

I have one on the bottoms of both my feet, almost in the same spot. I need to go and see a dermatologist and get the rest of my moles looked at soon, never really thought about what was lurking under my feet!

My son has one -- I'm not sure if it's a freckle or a mole that's smushed flat, but it appeared basically overnight when he was 7. I asked the pediatrician and she told me that the thinking used to be that any moles on hands and feet needed to be removed, but the new thinking is to treat them like any other mole -- his had regular boundaries, wasn't growing, and didn't have any other "danger" signs so they had us watch and see, so far (he's 11) nothing.

It was weird to me that it wasn't there, and then the next time I looked it was.

Thanks guys! I feel much better. All the searches I did made it sound like it's really rare to have one on your foot. I should have learned my lesson by now about searching for medical stuff on the internet.
