Bug bite: You probably got bitten by a bug of some sort - impossible to tell what sort without seeing it in person. Could also be a small staph infection, or a bite that has become infected. Apply warm soaks 2-3 times/day, but if it doesn't resolve in a few days see your doctor or a dermatologist. ...Read more

Earlier I noticed the red spot on my leg and on my neck. Is this a sign of the chickenpox, what to do?

Earlier I noticed the red spot on my leg and on my neck. Is this a sign of the chickenpox, what to do?

2 red spots on your: Body probably isn't chicken pox. A rash from chickenpox often occurs first on trunk (chest/back) ; then moves to face ; then extremities. The rash becomes blisters that itch. Blisters usually have all transformed into scabs in about a week. There are usually around 100 to 300 lesions (more on adults than small children). The rash could spread to mouth, eyelids ; genitalia. ...Read more

I have a bug bite on my leg. There's a red spot in the middle, and the area around is red and very swollen and it's painful to walk. Is it infected?

Maybe: Very hard to say without seeing or knowing what the bug is. Most times, a "bug bite" that is not witnessed is a spontaneous cellulitis, which is a superficial infection of the skin and soft tissue. If this was an actual bug bite, it may be reaction to the venom, which would depend on what bug it is (classic is the brown recluse spider bite). See a doctor. ...Read more

Skin infections: Pus filled bumps on the skin are usually the symptom of a skin infection. When they become red, warm to touch and painful it is called cellulitis. Treatment of this includes oral antibiotics and occassionally drainage. See your doctor, because resistant infections are becoming more common and require special treatment. ...Read more

I have a bright red spot on my lower leg I noticed two days ago and I'm getting a numb feeling in the back of my knee?

I have a bright red spot on my lower leg I noticed two days ago and I'm getting a numb feeling in the back of my knee?

I'm not sure we can: Put these two things together. The red spot is MOST likely a skin condition: eczema, psoriasis, etc. But another cause is allergies, perhaps to a bug bite. Have you been in a tick area? I suppose you must consider Lyme Disease, though this is much less common than many people think. I think the spot and numbness can both be watched; if the spots enlarge/spread or numbness persists, see your Doctor ...Read more

Red spot with lump appeared on my lower leg. It turned black. Test, no clot, no spider bite. Lump still there and black after 1yr. Size of a quarter?

Bump on leg: It's hard to say for sure without seeing it and getting a better history, but any new unexplained skin lesion should be checked by your primary and/or dermatologist. A simple biopsy is sometimes all that is needed to make a determination of its cause. Especially for unexplained lesions that change color, these need to be checked out by a doctor. ...Read more
