Reddish brown freckle like spots on lower legs/ankles. Started out small and has spread over time. What could this be?
Rash: A history needs to be obtained and this needs to be examined to work toward an accurate diagnosis.
Dry skin eczema: Nummular (coin shaped) eczema is extremely common on the lower legs. Dry skin starts the condition, and scratching (excoriation) worsens the itch and rash. Usually, a topical steroid is required, often a strong prescription steroid. If your condition worsens with steroids, ringworm (tinea corporis) must be ruled out. In general, I recommend shorter warm showers (not hot), nonscented lotion daily.

Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.

I shaved my lower legs with a dull razor and immediately had red pinpoint spots in clusters - petechaie? Taking weeks to fade.
Give it time: Small hemorrhages in the skin will fade with time. Let it heal by itself, intervention can only make it worse.See 1 more doctor answer

I have a rash on both lower legs, no itching, no pain, slightly raised. Red spots, noticed on 9/04/2014, starting peeling about a week after that.
There are many: Questions: first your age, second recent history of fever, illness, any history of contact with allergens, and of course see what the rash actually looks like. My suggestion is that if your rash does not clear in 2 weeks I would see a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment. There are many things you may have but most likely if rash resolves it is related to virus or contact. Hope that helps

Woke up with red spots on 1 leg. Next day more red spots and on both lower legs. Spots are itchy, slight bump in center. Dry, irritant throat @ night.
Possible reaction: It is difficult to assess without seeing the lesions but it can represent a bite or even represent a reaction to a viral upper respiratory infection. I would see a physician so that they can perform the appropriate evaluation or tests for this if it does not improve.See 1 more doctor answer
