Causes Of Rash And Red Spots On Lower Legs
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.

What causes an itchy rash with little bumps on top of my feet and redness on lower legs? Also bumps are not itching anymore, now they are dry bumps.
Allergic reaction: Usually rashes on the top of your feet are casued by some type of allergic reaction or contact dermatits.

Your socks or shoes could be creating the rash on your feet more so if they got wet while wearing them or if you have changed soaps or detergents. If the rash persists or returns get examined by a doctor. ...Read more

In general, I recommend shorter warm showers (not hot), nonscented lotion daily. ...Read more
