I suffer with bad knees and knee pain and now I have a purple patch on the back of my leg and I get hot spots allover my legs..why and what is it?

Be seen: Skin changes are usually not associated with problems inside the knee itself, so it is probably unrelated to your " bad knees". There are a number of potential causes. I would not hesitate to be seen to have it diagnosed. ...Read more

38w pregnant.noticed legs discolouring and veins protruding when standing. No swelling or pain, no hot spots,in both legs. Disappears when elevated?

Infection?: Red hot swollen spots make me think of infection, perhaps abscess or folliculitis, or sebaceous cysts. Abscesses don't usually go away by themselves but rather need to be drained. Folliculitis might come & go but not usually 4" in diameter (that's huge!). Not common to have several sebaceous cysts in one area. Go see your family doc for evaluation, testing & treatment. Perhaps bleeding disorder? ...Read more

What could cause hot spots? (usually on wrists, stomach, or legs) to happen? (hot 2me, not to touch)

Hot spots: This is very unusual. If the hot spots are symmetrical then perhaps you are having some type of peripheral neuritis. If this continues it is best if you see your physician for an examination to determine the cause. ...Read more
