R/O ECZEMA: Eczema /Allergic dermatitis is especially prevalent in these areas of the body. It responds to topical & oral steroids with flare. I also add in ZYRTEC&ZANTAC to block both histamine receptors. If SX. Persist or worsen get Derm consult. Also fungal infection needs to be evaluated with a woods lamp. Lastly blood work needs to be done if Lyme Disease is suspected

A 50-year-old member asked:

My left leg is red and has been swollen got about 6 weeks, nothing broken. What could be the problem?

Doctor can examine: A leg that has been swollen and reddened for six weeks is not normal and can have a serious problem. There can be infection in the bone, or some sort of bone cancer or muscle tumor. Autoimmune disorders causing arthritis can affect the arms and legs. Blockages in blood vessels or lymphatic channels can cause swelling and poor circulation in a leg. A doctor can examine such a leg and run tests.

Presents variably: Commonly, blood clots cause pain and swelling but sometimes they will only cause one or the other. Occasionally, they cause no symptoms. If a blood clot is small and in what we call calf veins, you might only get pain without swelling. If the clot is only blocking part of the vein, but not all of it, you also might get no swelling.

I have this black / purple bump on my left leg. it is 1/2 a centimeter in diameter and it is puffy and red around the edges. what is this.. thing?

Bruise?: Could this be a bruise? Sounds irritated if it has red around the edges---Was there anything there initially, like a birthmark or an irritation or was there a bug bite that may have bled into itself from scratching? If it persists for few more days, should be seen by your physician or dermatologist.
