Question: hello,
My name is XXXXXX and I'm 23 years old from Iowa. I weigh 120 pounds and do c.n.a. work for a living. I need you're help!
I have had this thing on my ankle for about a year now. I don't want to call it a rash, because its under my skin as well. It started out as little bumps under my skin.... I was thinking it was just cysts. As time went on, I noticed the bumps getting bigger and spreading. I have about 15-20 of the bumps. The skin on the ankle looks purplish grey. It does not itch or hurt. please help me!

Brief Answer:
vasculitis with varicosity

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have gone through your query and history. Since your work is related to prolong standing and the lesion is increasing in size, it is more likely a varicosity leading to vasculitis. I insist you see a surgeon / vascular surgeon for complete examination and treatment. Most probably you will be advised to use compression stockings. If medical management is not possible, you may require surgical intervention.

Hope I have answered you. You can close the discussion and rate the answer, if you don't have further query.

Wish you good health
Regards
Dr. Gaurav Katiyar

My daughter was complaining of feeling sick yesterday and was coughing and acting like she wanted to throw up. She threw up a little last night and is still coughing today. She complained that her face was itchy and I noticed she developed a small rash on her cheek near her eye.

My 16 month old has an infected crack on his thumb from thumb sucking. It was red and swollen and had small rashy bumps around it. He received a Rocephin shot in the Dr. office and is now on Keflex for 10 days, this is day 3. The same time this infection appeared, he developed a rash on his feet and legs: red, raised bumps, that do not appear to be bothering him. The rash has now spread to his arms, hands, and face as well. He has also started to have freqent explosive diarrhea that has absolutely NO odor. Could all this be related to the infection? No fever, and the rash started prior to any antibiotic use.
