In utero the baby receives O2 from the placenta so blood bypasses the lung through the ductus arteriosus (DA) which closes at birth and blood then flows through the lung to pick up O2. If it doesn't close its called a patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). Doctors have discovered that it can often be encouraged to close by giving the baby NSAIDS. We avoid NSAIDs in pregnancy to prevent early DA closure.

In the 1980s with work on anti-virals, antibacterial research fell off so fluoroquinolones (like Cipro) were rushed to market. Ever since, there's been new revelations of surprising adverse effects like spontaneous tendon ruptures and now aortic aneurysms that can occur anytime in the future and are not dose related but more likely with Steroid use, diabetes, and other pre-existing risk factors

Forget about the front the real question is why there's an itchy red rash on the back of your legs. Is it always there? If not, when does it occur and for how long? When was the first time? What were you doing the day before, an hour before. What are you wearing? Is it one confluent rash or just in patches. Is it only behind your knees. Answer these questions and you'll probably figure it out.
