Common Questions and Answers about Swollen ankles red blotches


Avatar f tn My symptoms are swollen feet, knees with tight skin. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> blotches and skin cracking. Weak <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ankles</span>. Legs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span>. Heat coming off joints. Hips burning. Pain in all joints. Been to several specialist and all I know is that I don't have RA, Lupus or anything else there is a blood test for. My life has come to a stop.
Avatar n tn Troubles began with ankles swelling, then later a toe nail began to fall off, months after, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> and brownish blotches began to appear on one ankle with mild itching. The blotches have now developed on the other ankle and red spots have appeared on my legs. Dr. recommended MENTAX for 14 days. I see no improvement. Any ideas on what I may have?
Avatar n tn My boyfriend and I went to Rehoboth Beach, DE last weekend and he has an itchy rash on his waist, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ankles</span> and thighs. I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> bumps on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ankles</span> and knees. Some of my bumps are raised and seem to be filled with liquid. He went to the doctor but could not get a diagonosis because doctor sen't sure what it was and prescribed a cortizone cream and antihistimine. Mine seem to be going away. We are thinking his could be scabies and are afraid to sleep together as it could be contagious.
Avatar n tn My feet are the worst. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> painful <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ankles</span> covered in these <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> splotches. I don't know what to do. And I leave for vacation on Saturday???
Avatar n tn However, since then BOTH of my feet and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ankles</span> have been <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> most all of the time (sometimes severely). The weird part is that I've noticed that whenever I'm on antibiotics for any unrelated illness, my feet and ankles do not swell. I've mentioned this to several doctors who all say that it can't have anything to do with it. But, I just think it is very odd that it never fails. Has anyone else ever noticed this?
Avatar f tn diagnosed with meningitis , while being hospitalized, there was total body swelling and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> blotches all over the body. after the swelling went down there was severe burns over the entire body. I have numbness and tingling in both hands and both feet and legs are swollen and my feet and ankles are black . i can't walk and my hands are not working properly either. i am pending insurance so i do not know where i can turn.
Avatar n tn Hi I am 64 just had an angiogram stents put in my abdomen as far as I know and I am now worse than ever with walking due to the toe on my right foot <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> blotches on bottom of my feet. I am on the generic brand of Plavix and noticed the calf muscles in my leg are not flexing very good and painful to the touch and not sure if due to medication or not. I think I may go to the emergency room tomorrow to be on the safe side.
Avatar n tn I walked a lot a past few days and my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ankles</span> and legs got <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> and now there are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> blotches on my ankles and they are so painful that i cannot walk. i am also running a very high fever. I had coronary artery grafting surgery few years back, could it have anything to do with saphenous vein removal for graft? what can i do to make it better?
Avatar f tn My 14 year old woke up yesterday morning with a few <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> blotches on his knees and was complaining of alot of pain.At first I thought something had bitten him so I took him to the doctor and he looked at his knees and said he has juvenile arthritis.I thought diagnosing Arthritis would require some type of X-rays or something.. My son had never complained of knee pain before until yesterday.He gave him an injection to help with the inflamation and has referred us to a specialist.
Avatar m tn Also my hands seem to be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> most of the time. Also, I had pain in my left shoulder, left wrist, and in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ankles</span> for about 2 weeks after all of the genital symptoms cleared. The palms of my hands seem to have somewhat red blotches in the palms, as well as the sides and heels of my feet. This week, the skin on the palms of my hands started peeling. Little circles of dead skin would pop up and then the skin would peel.
Avatar m tn As time went on, after I relapsed the first time, they became large purple blotches and very very painful. It would feel like my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ankles</span> were broken, legs very <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span>. I tried to get tested for it a few times at the Quest lab I finally had to go to a hospital to get tested for it. It came back positive. Since being cured of HCV I have seen no signs of it but have never been retested either.
Avatar f tn My husband went to massage them and they had large red blotches on both legs and my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ankles</span> and legs were <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span>. I never had my legs get this bad before (previously I had smaller blotches from walking but nothing this severe. I have attached a picture of what it looked like on one of my legs, it actually got a little worst the next day and now 5 days later still have it but alot lighter. Any idea of what it is?
Avatar n tn They say his liver is improving, that they are able to visualize all the vessels and the liver is beginning to become smooth again. His skin was red and blotchy, his eyes were always red, and his face was swollen.
Avatar f tn My skin on my legs turned <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> and had these white blotches, some white blotches are small like the size of a pencil eraser, some are large like the size of the opening of a coffee cup. They appear all over my legs. My feet turn purplish and become all veiny. Sometimes my feet are beat red. Then my hands turn beat red and my arms get this red dotty rash. All the veins in my hands going all the way up my arms bulge really bad. It does not even look like my skin.
Avatar n tn i have had very itchy skin for three years now but what worries me about it is that i have permanent blotches on my tummy back and mostly my legs which appeared three years ago and when i get hot or after a bath or sometimes i can be just sitting relaxing the itching starts and these browm blotches turn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> and then they go in a lump and drive me mad. The lumps also go a clear colour so you cannot see where the blotches were.
Avatar n tn I also have neuropathy and the redish brown spots all over my feet and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ankles</span>. Also within the last few months both shins above my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ankles</span> have become <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> and sore to the touch. My symtoms of neuropathy first started about seven years ago when we took our then five year daughter into the hospital to get her toncils out and she came out of it with brain damage. I cant even begin to tell anyone how devistating phisically and mentally this has been.
Avatar f tn When I got home I pulled it off. I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> blotches across my back and sides. I even showed my husband. I wasn't sure what was going on so I threw the bra away. I haven't had a problem since. I think it was a very sexy brand. I didn't think anything of it until I saw the broadcast on the news. Well at least I know what was causing the problem.
Avatar n tn He did not have spider nevi on his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ankles</span>. Just all <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span>/purple blotches all over his body. He had been bleeding in his jeans/pants for some time, and too ill to wash them (thats how I know)He was bleeding out of every cavity in his body probly for a few weeks before I found his body.He only told people not to visit because he was ill and worried it was contagious, he did not tell us how sick he must have been. So PLEASE!!!! IF YOU ARE CONCERNED, HAVE A BIOPSY!!!
534800 tn?1217170959 I'd like to know anyone who's had this hideous and annoying condition anywhere on their bodies other than <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ankles</span> and lower legs - have you had it start on your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ankles</span> and then over the years progress to other parts of your body? Any remedy to reduce redness besides not exercising or walking outside? I moved from the dry climate of the Southwest and Southern Cal to hot and humid New England four years ago - nevr, ever had this until the first summer I arrived and then BAM!
Avatar f tn I forgot everything he asked when trying to diagnose cryo, but I know he looked for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> blotches and asked about my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ankles</span> because cryo seems to effect the lower half of the body. Doc says curing hep c cures symptoms. Since it can be very painful for some people, sometimes they can give Re(i)tuxin infusions to ease pain.I'm currently on maintenence of 90mcg of pegysus wkly indefinatly. Only one wk so far.Catch up later.
Avatar n tn a.) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> blotches/hives progressing to my feet (tops swollen and itchy) and the palms of my hands look like a red balloon and continue to itch so very very bad yet I am sent home. Day 4: a.) Wake up with a cough and having trouble breathing ER gives another antihistamine shot, Albuteraol inhaler for cough and observes the large red blotches covering my entire body and now my forehead and the back of my head have small lumps followed by b.
Avatar n tn On top of the itching, it's also embarrassing to have hives on your face. I hate it. Even going to the store with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> blotches around my eyes, and even slightly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> lips at times just isn't cool. At this point I have realized that there is no solution for the few of us that suffer from this, but I'm glad I'm not the only one. The only thing I can suggest is, Hydroxyzine for the itch, and maybe some OTC anti-histamines. So, back to the original topic!
147426 tn?1317269232 I saw my internist who noted pathologically hyperactive reflexes on both knees and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ankles</span>, weakness of the R hip flexors and referred me to the neurologist I had seen before for migraines. I knew this neurologist thought I was a crock. But, he was also supposedly brilliant and had been named one of Portland's "Top 100 Doctors. So, even though he didn't seem to like me, I expected him to be knowledgeable and professional.
Avatar f tn I suffered with them 24hours a day big <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> blotches from head to toe for almost 2 years. They drove me crazy to the point that I thought they were never going to go and there was no total relief except doseing myself up with up to 6 antihistamine pills a day. As most people know make you very drowsy cause the none drowsy ones i became immune to and had to change. I would sleep about 18 hours a day which made life very hard with a toddler.
Avatar n tn I received a flu shot at 7pm at Costco Tuesday night, Wednesday morning at 4am I woke up to extremely itchy, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> hot palms. The injection site is sore but not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span>. Because I had to go to work I took an Advil Cold & Sinus which took the edge off the itching and running my hands under cold water helped a bit. By Wednesday night my palms were bright red, hot, swollen, so itchy and my finger tips were turning purple. I took a couple Benadryl so I could drive home from work.
97615 tn?1212682189 I am not a runner but if I just want to walk briskly anytime between 10 and 30 minutes I will start to itch at my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ankles</span> and it moves up to my thighs until I can't stand it anymore. I get little <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> raised bumps and start to scratch like a crazy woman. I am able to get on an olyptical but not a treadmill which seems really weird. I can't even walk on my lunchhour for fear that I will get a breakout. It's hard to even walk the rest of the way home once it starts to itch.
Avatar n tn Crawling sensations on skin Fainting Blurred vision Smothering spells - gasping for breath <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> blotches on skin or circular arcs of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> skin Lack of sexual drive Chest pain - severe, but EKG normal. Can't tolerate bright light or loud sounds Joint pains Another clue is that the symptoms are usually worse in the early morning after waking, and get better after being up and around a full day. It's a remarkably long list and for very good reasons!
Avatar n tn i have the same prob i got some antifung cream to mine itch pop spread and scales over like dri skin its painful like it burns when u rub loyion on it it gets <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> doctors dont care any body watch house if we had a doctor like him we would be ok lol
Avatar n tn Even though nothing is coming up in there basic exams, they think that it is poor blood circuation. It causes my legs to slowly fade in color and bright <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> hot spots appear. They say that the blood is building in spots under the skin causing it to suddenly get hot. So even though I have no real answers yet and just guesses from primary doctors, it nice to know that everything came back ok. They are sending me to a blood circulation specialist as well as a heart specialist.
530191 tn?1214166411 The hives are itchy and uncomfortable and I am so tired of having people point out <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> blotches on my neck, face, arms, etc. I've learned that in addition to being diagnosed with autoimmune hives, I have also developed an allergy to all pain medication except for tylenol. My immunologist says that autoimmune urticaria is often triggered by an initial allergic reaction to something such as ibuprofin. Now my immune system overreacts to everything.
