Bug bite on leg was itchy, grew and is now a round purple bruise on my leg - assuming it is a spider bite but do i need to treat or will it go away?
I have a flat, non-itchy, non-dry pink/red mark on leg for a year, sometimes looks like a bruise, changes shade regular, what can it be?
Without looking: The answer I would provide is merely a likely thing, but this is speculative. I have always espoused the doctrine that a rash or skin condition must be seen to be given a diagnosis. Spider veins and hemangiomas can appear similar to your description and are often itchy at times. Still this is conjecture. Show this skin anomaly to a doctor, and you will be able to find out what it is. ...Read more

Took doxycyclin for cellulitis on my leg for 21 days. I still have a little bump (bruise looking) and my leg still feels swollen and itchy. Normal?
1 leg or both? Fevr?: The situation is rather complex. There are many questions to be asked & we need a picture or an exam in order to understand what's going on. 21 days is an awful long time to take antibiotics. I suspect you have dermatitis (irritation of skin) rather than cellulitis (infection of skin), as the non-response to antibiotics indicates. Use HealthTap Prime or TTYD about symptoms. Good luck. ...Read more
