How to get rid of a bad rash on your leg?

Depends

Rash
It depends on what kind of rash you have and what is the mechanism for the rash. Thus no good answer without a better description.

Dr. Ilan Cohen answered:

Can laser photocoagulation be used to treat macular degeneration? I'm 65 and was recently diagnosed with macular degeneration. I want to do whatever I can to prevent myself from going blind. Is laser photocoagulation a safe treatment to cure my condition?

Not really

Macular_degeneration
Modern treatment of macular degeneration involves the use of laser photocoagulation less and less. Most people have dry macular degeneration which does not require surgical intervention. For those with the wet form, drugs are used much more than lasers today. Regardless of the treatment, we cannot cure macular degeneration currently. We can only manage it.

I always get red razor bumps and rashes when I shave down there. What can I do to prevent it?

Use care

Rash
Insure that you use fresh sharp blades vice dull blades. If the hair is more than several mm long – then trim it before shaving it. Wash the area before shaving – warm water can help to soften the hairs. Use a lubricant when shaving. Avoid using products that contain alcohol or are scented. Shave in the direction of the hair – not against it. Be gentle when shaving – don’t push down too hard.

Can you tell me if I have just been exposed to the chicken pox, can I get a vaccine now to prevent breaking out in the rashes?

Depends on variables

Vaccinations
If you had it as a kid or were immunized (started mid 90's) you have little to worry about.A vaccination now would not stop the progression of the illness or treat it. If susceptible,you can count forward 10-21 days from exposure as the time you would break out. Oral meds could be helpful if you do. Those at high risk due to chemo/cancer can sometimes obtain VZIG (immune globulin) to prevent it.

Dr. Bac X. Nguyen answered:

why do I get random skin rashes that move in location and resolve without treatment? I have been having this for the last year.

Hive/urticaria?

Dermatitis
since I don't have much from your description, I suspect you may have urticaria, commonly known as hive. This often comes randomly and resolve within hours..there are several type.physical urticaria (pressure, cholinergic, dermatographism), urticaria due medical illness, and idiopathic (unknown cause)..it is often frustrating but not dangerous. if bothersome, consult doc. good luck

What r symptoms & best treatment of mast cell disease? i get constant hive reactions to every med i try, freq rashes, wondering if mast is my issue.

See allergist

Mast_cell
First you need a blood test to confirm whether you have a mast cell disorder to start with. If the blood test is positive, then one will have to work up the cause for the mast cell disorder. The usual treatment in high doses of antihistamine but you really need to find out whether your problem is from a mast cell issue or something else. A B/c allergist should be the one you consult.
