I got a small scratch on my leg and it

I got a small scratch on my leg and it has been leaking a great deal of clear fluid from the cut. I am hypertensive, but on medication, although I do sometimes have swelling in my legs. Should I be concerned about the large amount of fluid coming out? I am a 49 yo female.

I have a lot of small scratches appearing on my legs in the front part I am 57 years old and no health problems and no medication I am not doing anything or scratching myself, so I am wondering should I be concerned there is something more I should check out...they burn as if I just got scratched by something. I do take a lot of hot showers and haven t been using lotions could that be the problem?

My son has suddenly developed some kind of a rash on his left leg. It is on the front of the calf - two circular reddened areas about the size of a dime with a couple of tiny red spots nearby. Around the back of the calf are 3 small red areas now. He is not scratching the areas. There are no blisters. They don t look infected - but are red with some purple color. The small areas have increased in number by 2 today but the larger areas have not changed in size. What could this be?
