Hi there.
Is it possible to upload a clear photograph of the lesion on this web site?
Are they in a grouped pattern on the thighs & do they appear on one thigh? How long is a they stay 3 days, 1 wwek, 10 days or 2-3 weeks before they go away?
Are you a sportsperson by nature?
Does a friend/aquaintence or sporting partner etc have a similar rash?
Do you enjoy travel/outdoors & do you recall any particular insect bites etc?
Are there any pets in your vicinity?
Await some responses before i make further suggestions. Regds
