For the last 7 years or so I have had a burning, itching sore on the outside of my bottom leg. I have been to a dermatoligist several times and can't get it under control. The sore is about 2 by 4 inches. And for the last year I have started developing one on the right leg same location. Any suggestions?
Hi, My dog has had a sore on his right hing leg for about 8 months. It is slowly healing but he keeps licking it. I have applied Bitter Apply around the sore to stop him from licking, but now noticed that he has another one on his left hind leg. I'm not sure what to make of this. I originally thought he had scraped his leg, but as I said it is taking a very long time to heal. Can anyone suggest something.

However there is no redness at all, it doesnt itch.

A few days ago I've noticed a small sore/lesion on the back of my left hand. It was a little itchy at first but not at all after the first day or so. The first picture (back of my hand) is recent and it's a picture of the sore almost healing. It used to be slighty bumpier. 1. Is this a sign of an infection/STD/HIV? Also, recently my leg started to itch.. I thought it was a bug bite but it does not look like one. The second picture is of my lower right leg. 2.
they occur on any part of the body. currently they have popped up on the sole of my right leg (two lumps), on the thigh (one lump) and on the palm of my hand. Our GP referred us to a dermatologist who put me on a 30 day course of medication saying it will clear but did not. He then took a sample of the affected area by cutting off some skin for tests. Nothing materialised of the tests as the doc said there was nothing there. the spots vanished and have come up again almost six months later.
The pain doesn't feel very deep either, it is just on the skin it started off on my leg now its move to my belly and side. There is nothing to see at all.

Small fiber neuropathy can be diagnosed with a skin biopsy and with a test called a QSART. Additionally, symptoms present on one side of the body versus the other, or in just one limb. Causes could include a stroke or the condition multiple sclerosis. These would best be excluded by an MRI. If symptoms migrate (move from one place to the other) and are intermittent, causes might include seizures, migraine disorder or metabolic problems such as low calcium.

I was doing knees to feet jumps and pretty soon afterwards I noticed a soreness on the back of my leg right above the knee. When I inspected it I felt a lump. I tried doing some research and thought maybe it was a hematoma or something, but I'm not sure. There is discoloration where the lump is. The lump is still there and has been there for a couple weeks now. It is not that sore just feels hard and it does not bother me when I am moving my leg around.

I went back the dermatologist was out of work for 2 weeks and was put on prednisone and another ointment. Mean while the open sore on my leg is still not healed. I was put on a strong medication known as leviaquin. That was the only treatment that semi seemed to help the sore. Now my whole body itches. I have sores all over my legs and more recently a itchy rash that is over my whole body. I have seen 4 doctors 1 dermatologist and I can't seem to figure out what's wrong.
