Hi,

Thanks for writing in.

I would need more information to understand your concerns better. Please provide the following information:

- Could you explain the lesions in detail?
- Where is it occurring exactly?
- Do you have diabetes?
- Do you have history of varicose veins?
- Whether breast cancer was operated or not?
- What type of arthritis are you suffering with?

Degenerative arthritis does not cause such recurrent lesions. Inflammatory Arthritis like rheumatoid arthritis may be associated with such lesions.

Looking forward to your response...

Regards
