Splotchy legs. Should I be concerned?

My son has splotchy legs. Not a rash, but like you can see the veins. Almost like a giraffe print? He is almost 3, just diagnosed with RSV, has been running a high temp, currently taking EDTA detoxamin and Nystatin. Should I be concerned?

Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Does he have any abdominal pain, fever, joint pains. It could be due to bleeding from under the skin as associated with respiratory infections called Henoch Schonlein purpura. It is best to be safe and get him looked at by his Paediatrician to rule this out along with other causes of the same. Keep him well hydrated and proper balanced diet.
