    Suggest treatment for lethargy and bruises on the lower legs

Posted on Sat, 29 Jul 2017 in Medicines and Side Effects
Question: Hello. I have been feeling tired and fatigued lately and have had some serious allergy problems. Silly question (i hope). I noticed this on the back of my left lower leg this morning. Has never itched or anything. Does this look like a bruise i may have forgotten about or a bug bite or something else? It is smoothe, but just odd. Thanks!
