History of cervical cancer. Red marks on legs, hot to the touch, painful when pressed. Any ideas?

I am a 25 year old female, height is 5 1, 210 pounds, the only medicalk history I have ever had was cervical cancer when I was 18, which I had an operation to cure me of the dysplasia cells. About a year ago I learned that the exact same thing has came back, I havent taken care of that yet. Blood pressure is normal most of the time, have had a few high readings in the past two years, not taking any medications . I recently have had red, blotchy marks appear on my legs, they are hot to touch and if pressed on hard they are painful, any ideas?

Hi Sheetal,
Thanks for writing in.
It can be purpuric spots or erythema nodosum.

You can apply calamine lotion over the area.Also analgesic like paracetamol would be helpful.

Take a lot of lemon juice daily.Also you can take vitamin C tablets daily.
A course of oral antibiotics would be needed.
I encourage you to visit a qualified dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Hope this helps.
