Small Red Raised Bumps on Legs and Ankles

by Hope
(WV)

My nine year old daughter went to a school dance a week after recuperating from the flu. About an hour after she was at the dance she started getting a leg rash with small red bumps on her ankles and up her legs but they did not itch. Shortly after coming home her left ankle started to swell. I gave her Benadryl and put cream on her leg rash as well as soaking her ankle in hot water. We went to the hospital the next day when her knee was swollen as well and the spots were moving up her back (the spots still did not itch and actually never started to itch) and it hurt for her to walk. The doctor said it was an auto immune disorder and called it HDS but I cannot find anything on this. The doctor said that the rash on legs would go away and it was her body shutting down after being sick but she is alright now and it will go away soon. The problem is that it keeps coming back. Any time she is playing or running around for a little while the red welts on her legs come back.

Does anyone have any clue what these leg rashes can be? It has been almost a month now and they keep coming back. Please help.

by Amber
(United Kingdom)

I am 13 years old and I have these little tiny spots on my lower and upper legs and no matter how much I exfoliate and moisterize they just stay there. They go away a bit when I am cold but when material touches my legs they go horribly red. Does any one have any sugestions about this leg rash because its really embarrassing! Thank you.

Discolored Skin Leg Rash

by Cah
(Guam)

I have a problem with the skin on my leg area. I notice that every time I shave it gets irritated and then I'd scratch it until it peels and leaves ugly dark discoloration marks on my legs. They look like old sores.

The marks take forever to heal and it is just so visible I can't stand wearing shorts or a skirt! I noticed the women on my dads side of the family have ugly legs also but some do not shave. Could this be hereditary?

I need to know a good quick way to get rid of these discoloration marks and make my legs look flawless. This problem started when I was a teen and I am now 35 years old.

Inner Thighs Reddish Flat Rash

by Denise
(Ct)

I have a rash on the top of my inner thighs that is slightly reddish and feels a little rough but it is not itchy. I have an appointment with a dermatologist but I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this type of rash. It is very uncomfortable.

I believe it may have started when I was away in August of this year at a cottage on a lake where it was very hot with no air conditioning. Also, it may have started in the groin area because it was reddish with small bumps in the crease of the thigh. But that area is much better but now this reddish flat rash has appeared.

Rash on the back of my legs.
by: Anonymous

For the past couple of years, I've had this really bad rash on my legs right under my butt. The rash consists of little red pimples that eventually turn in to dark spots. At first I thought it was razor bumps but I stopped shaving that high up and the rash was still there. I feel these red pimples only come out in the summer when it's hot and I am sweating. I have tried everything you can think of to treat this problem such as over the counter medication but nothing works. In fact these treatments only makes the rash worse and the pimples get very irritated.

I have not gone to the dermatologist yet but I'm in the process of doing so. Please help me! I'm 30 years old and feel very insecure about it when I wear my bathing suit and short shorts. Can someone please help me!

Reddish patches on the calve of my leg that are not itchy and likely caused by medications.

Reddish patches on the calve of my leg that are not itchy and likely caused by medications.

I get these reddish patches on the back of my calves. They are not itchy at all, however, if I start to scratch it, they start to itch. It is easy for me not to scratch but sometimes, I forget. I take six medications as listed below:

Metformin is an oral diabetes medicine that helps control blood sugar levels.

Valsartan/hydrochlorothiazide is used for treating my high blood pressure.

Allopurinol is used to treat gout or kidney stones.

Glimepiride is an oral diabetes medicine that helps control blood sugar levels.

Fenofibrate helps reduce cholesterol and triglycerides (fatty acids) in the blood.

Carvedilol is used to treat heart failure and hypertension (high blood pressure).

Skin Rash on Legs Knees and Throat

Skin Rash on Legs and Knees

Skin Rash on Legs and Knees

I've had these spots for over 3 weeks. The doctor was unsure about them and therefore I had a full blood count and it came back clear. I was then given antibiotics, finished the course, and still no change. I have also applied fucidin and lyclear and still no change. The first sign when it appears, usually looks like a spot. Some of them look like blood blisters. Can anyone advise?

More information on skin rashes can be found at the diagnose my skin rash page.

Skin rash - legs, knees and throat
by: rosemary in Metairie, la

Those bumps look just like the ones on my body except it is everywhere. I itch all the time and I use Hydroxyzine anti-histamine 25mg. 3 pills 3 times a day and it helps with the itching but the bumps don't go away. See your doctor and see if he can give you something. It usually takes a combination of anti-histamines to help. I hope this helps.
