Red rashes on back, neck, stomach, dark bruising, recurring condition. Causes?

I have a red rash , tender to the touch and itchy in certain areas. The rash is on my back, shoulders, and stomach . After a couple of days it will change in color and skin will become dark and bruised-looking . The redness and tenderness is reoccurring and usually last a few days and becomes dark again. I have a dermatologist appointment at the end of the month but what could this be and what can help it.

Hi there... thanks for posting in HCM.
with your history i can think of urticarial vasculitis.u have not mentioned ur age and sex. dermatologists successfully treat this condition.some blood investigations like CBC, ESR etc r needed. the treatment options include steroids, dapsone, hydroxychloroquin.
Take care.
