Question: The front of my left shin is red,irritated and feverish. No severe pain but some discomfort. I wear support hose at work because I stand all day on concrete. Yesterday when I removed the support hose,the skin was red and felt like a rug burn. I do have Schaumburg’s and venous insufficiency.
