Viral? Allergic?: Blotchy appearing reddish rashes can occur when the blood flow in the tiny vessels at the skin's surface change, such as in an allergic rash, a viral rash, or in reaction to changes in skin temperature. Viral infections that cause cold symptoms and other symptoms can sometimes cause such skin patterns (fifth disease, caused by a virus, can cause reddish patterns). A doctor can evaluate if needed.

What can cause swelling, redness and pain in one leg?

What can cause swelling, redness and pain in one leg?

Possible blood clot: My main worry with those symptoms would be a blood clot in the leg veins called a deep venous thrombosis (dvt). Causes can be long trips/immobility, recent surgery and inherited conditions. These can be life-threatening so need attention. Infections such as cellulitis can also cause those symptoms, as can gout (not always the toe), a baker's cyst behind the knee, and other things. Maybe need checked.

Is overweigth for 50 lbs can cause leg swelling or enlarge leg w/o pain and redness just little big cmpare to left leg after I was cured of cillulitis?

Is overweigth for 50 lbs can cause leg swelling or enlarge leg w/o pain and redness just little big cmpare to left leg after I was cured of cillulitis?

Maybe: I'm going to guess what you are trying to ask here, b/c your question is all over the place. Weight gain can lead to leg swelling, though one would expect both legs to swell. If you had cellulitis in a leg, it can lead to a long standing swelling problem. Consider use of medical compression hose, 20-30mm hg. Knee high should work.

What are the causes of swollen ankles with redness around the ankle area and lower legs?

What are the causes of swollen ankles with redness around the ankle area and lower legs?

simple cause: First and foremost, infection is out. Does anyone else in your family have this, do you stand on your feet a lot, does it get better when your legs are elevated or worse as the day progresses? Look up the terms venous insufficiency or venous stasis. Stop the water pills, stop the antibiotics, and get into a good pair of 20-30mmhg compression stockings and wear them when you are up.

What causes swelling of the ankles my right ankle swelled up from the inside up to the center of my leg. Excruciating pain and redness. The pain went away after two hours. Two days later my left foot started except only the ankle on the outside swelled wit

What causes swelling of the ankles my right ankle swelled up from the inside up to the center of my leg. Excruciating pain and redness. The pain went away after two hours. Two days later my left foot started except only the ankle on the outside swelled wit

In: In general, swelling that occurs in both feet/ankles simultaneously is usually the result of the body retaining fluid. It's the feet and ankles that swell only because gravity brings the fluid down there. It's not a symptom of something wrong with the feet or ankles, but rather some systemic condition that is causing fluid to be retained in the body. The 4 most common causes being an issue with either the heart, lungs, liver or kidneys. But when one foot or ankle swells, it almost always means something is wrong with the foot or ankle, and it's not related to fluid retention. Also, fluid retention is not typically painful; certainly not "excruciating." there are many reasons for an ankle to swell and become painful (i'm assuming there was no injury), and when you say first it was one ankle, then it went away, only to start up on the other ankle, i'd wonder about some kind of arthritic process of an inflammatory nature, like gout or rheumatoid arthritis. I suppose there is also the remote possibility you could have had a phlebitis in one leg which cleared up on its own, and then re-developed it on the other lower leg, but this is a stretch, to be honest. My best advice is to have your primary care physician take a look at it. He or she will be able to rule-out certain conditions, order appropriate tests, and make an appropriate referral to a specialist, if needed. But I wouldn't ignore this. I would get it checked out. Feel better.

Pain in right bump cheek some leg pain no swellin or redness no hist DVT no travel bc can DVT cause bum pain?

Dvt: Given your description your pain and especially its location and lack of distal congestion it is unlikely to be due to dvt. However, since we don't have your medical history or meds it's not possible to be absolutely certain. If you are for some reason really concerned discuss with your doctor and have a vascular study. It is likely neurological like sciatic or muscular due to strain or both.

Nerve pain: What you are describing is a type of nerve pain. It would be good to know what other symptoms you are presenting. Depending on the distribution of pain and how it all started we could tell if this is coming from your spine, if this is related to shingles, among other issues.
