i dont know whats wrong but everytime my legs get in contact with the sun they start to get splotches on my legs and my legs start to get red in a short period of the time my legs are in the sun i dont know if its because for the summer i didnt go in the sun at all(little to none) or its because i wear no sunscreen on my legs or because i moved into a other place and when they get red my whole leg gets red splotches all over.

Two days ago I woke up with a raised splotchy red rash on the top of my feet and around my ankles. I put some neosporin on it in the hope that it would go away. I woke up in the middle of the night because it itched very badly. This morning i woke up with the same little red spots on the outsides of my knees. I had a slight sore throat yesterday and am a little stuffed up today but other than the rash I feel fine. I have no idea what this could be. Any advice? p.s.
Hello, It can be a Golfer’s vasculitis heat rash, a red rash on the calves of many walkers. It often starts above the sock line and makes red patches and splotches up the calf. In that case, taking bath with cold water after staying in the sun or applying cold wet towels may help. If your legs are itchy during or after exercise, with no relation to heat, you may have exercise urticaria.In such cases, antihistaminics and not exercising on warm or humid days may help.
It appears on my knees and ankles mostly but can also be seen on legs and feet. It's raised red spots which appear to have white around them. It has come back every year for about 6 years. I live in Ireland so the climate can get warm but not very warm and not very often. When i get to the doctor it has disappeared. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.
My dd is 21mths old. She has had a rash on her legs for about 3wks now. I thought it was eczema but doesn't seem to look like that. They are red and blotchy on her legs and butt area....any thoughts? I've been putting hydrocortisone in it but doesn't seem to be doing anything.... oh...it seems to be worse after she is in the bathtub,..and i have to changed soaps either.....
The question I have is what are some possible reasons I could be having additional rash continuing to spread on both legs? The newer rash ranges between looking like the red, raised lines of the jellyfish sting and smaller, singular red bumps. It is in a bout 5 different spots including both legs and my groin. The lymph nodes in my groin have also felt enlarged this whole time, as my body has been fighting all this off. Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated!
They started showing up when I started using jock itch cream, but I haven't used the cream for about 4 days. The rash is red bumps that itch slightly and vary in size. The appear mostly on my forarms on the bottom side, and they have also appeared on my lower belly, and my upper legs.
For as long as I can remember I have had these red dots on my legs. More so on my calfs than my thigh. It's the holes where the hair grows from. They are not risen and they don't itch. It doens't really look like a rash either. They are just really red. I have tried every kind of razor and shaving cream known to man and nothing helps.I have tried shaving really lightly and still nothing.
Last night while sitting on the couch I developed small red dots on my right leg. Within an hour they spread to my left and they are everywhere on both of my legs but only on the bottom half around my knees and below. They do not itch they are just there. I took benadryl last night which helped a little but this morning when I woke up they are still there, but not as dark. I'm not sure if I need to see a doctor or dermatologist? I'm only 24 and I have never had this before.
A rash recently developed on my sons legs 13 years old in an isolated pattern. The rash appears to be 2" above his knees and then down to just above his shoe line. The areas are red and appear to be taunt/tight. Their is no oozing or head to the bump, howver it does appear to be raised 1/8", circular in shape and mainly on the front and sides and very little on the back or calf area. I would describe it as appearing to be a lot of mosquito bites.
after this rash went away i started to get the same kind of rash on my legs and arms, this rash presents itself like tiny patches of skin that i just really really itchy. there are a few places where this rash has started to heal and it just kinda stays as a red dot on my skin for a while. i got tested about 2 weeks ago and i came out clean for everything minus a blood test but that is only because no one was there to take blood. i am wondering if these are anything i should be worried about.
Over time I have developed red dots, first a few, nor there are beginning to cover my legs, upper arms and so on..........bigger ones on my stomach. I thought it had something to do with menopause? Now i relaize it is probably a bit more involved. Any ideas...............?

Hello, Skin rash and itching is a common side effect of Thiamzole and this itchy skin rash that your mother is having can be due to hives as a result of the side effect of this drug. For such hives, first of all the medication needs to be changed to some other drug. Then the primary treatment is by oral antihistamines. The most potent antihistamine, however, is probably the anti-depressant doxepin. You can apply an anti-itch cream or lotion to the affected area.

I have a red rash on both of my legs. I've had it for almost a week and it is spreading and getting worse. The doctor doesn't know what it is. Help!
If I lie down most of the day and don't have any clothing touching my legs they seem to be almost non-existent. If I stand on my legs all day, they get really really red. It doesn't matter what season it is, it's always the same. I've tried lotion and foam prescribed from the doctor. I don't have dry skin-it's very oily skin. I was diagnosed with breast cancer on April 23, 2010 and am currently in remission.
