Red blotchy skin on legs. Itchy, raised and bumpy. Fluid and blood comes out on scratching

I have red blotchy skin on legs from knees down. Much of the discoloration runs together to give a total red brown color. Close examination shows individual dots all run together. This has been mostly cosmetic until now. Individual dots of redish brown areas appear to be raised, bumpy and blister like and itch like crazy. Warm temperatur and sweating aggrivates the condition. If I scratch the bumps. clear fluid and some blood runs out.

I would be pleased to answer your question
The possibilities for below knee lesions include: Schamberg's purpura , venous eczemas , Contact dermatitis , eczematized pigmented purpuras.

You will need to apply over the counter cortaid cream on the affected area twice a day for 10 days . If it does not improve with the treatment you will need to show a Dermatologist to rule out one of the above .
Thanks and Take care
