I have a heated 4 cm red rash on the bottom of my leg. It is hot to touch and I don t see any cuts or bites. I have been feeling nauseous and extremely fatigued for the last 4 months. I have had lots of blood work done which the results are positive...and have been taking iron pills but I still feel terrible. I constantly have a headache and things will seem foggy ... I also have had my eyes checked...

Thanks for writing here.

From the information you mentioned rash seems to be due to cellulitis.It is deeper infection of skin.You need to take oral antibiotics like augmentin and antiinflamatory drugs.

Take rest and keep leg elevated.It will be better if you meet a dermatologist as early as possible.Hope this will help you.Take care.
