Red itchy spots on shins, elbows, behind knees & neck. No one else in home is afflicted. What is it and how do I get rid of it?
See your physician to get checked for accurate diagnosis. My guess is tinea corporis which is a fungal infection of the skin. It causes an itchy, red, often ring-shaped rash in these warm, moist areas of your body.
It is common in people who sweat a lot, as do athletes. It usually respond to topical anti fungals creams. ...Read more

Dermatitis: Dermatitis, or inflammation in the skin can cause this pattern. Eczema (atopic dermatitis) can do this, and the rash associated with gluten allergy (celiac sprue) called dermatitis herpetiformis can also do this. Hives can present similarly as well. Erythema multiforme is rare, but can appear this way and eventually makes little "target" lesions. A dermatologist should be able to diagnose you. ...Read more

I have a bright red spot on my lower leg I noticed two days ago and I'm getting a numb feeling in the back of my knee?
I'm not sure we can: Put these two things together. The red spot is MOST likely a skin condition: eczema, psoriasis, etc. But another cause is allergies, perhaps to a bug bite. Have you been in a tick area? I suppose you must consider Lyme Disease, though this is much less common than many people think. I think the spot and numbness can both be watched; if the spots enlarge/spread or numbness persists, see your Doctor ...Read more

Dermatologist: It's a good idea to consult a dermatologist in case more lesions appear in the future, but I wonder if these spots could have been caused by a bite from some sort of insect even though there was no itching. If no other skin spots appear a systemic cause is unlikely. ...Read more

I had asked a question earlier this week about itchy red spot. Now I think was a brown recluse spider bite?

Symptoms can include: severe pain at bite site after about 4 hours, severe itching, nausea, vomiting, fever, blistering, necrosis (tissue death). ...Read more
