See a doctor: This sounds as if you may be severely ill if this is due to low platelets or capillary fragility. You should be seen by your doctor and fully evaluated. Please don't let this go much longer. Hope this turns out to be something mild, but you need further assessment.

Do you think I have leukemia? It started with a sore throat, rashes, bruising, itchy skin, muscle pain, nerve pain? It's improving. Had no fever.

Do you think I have leukemia? It started with a sore throat, rashes, bruising, itchy skin, muscle pain, nerve pain? It's improving. Had no fever.

Unlikely: These symptoms can be interpreted many ways, but if leukemia were present (which is very improbable) the symptoms would not improve, but get progressively worse. Sounds as if you have been reading texts looking for a diagnosis and are learning that there is more to medical practice than is written down. See a good clinician. Good luck and get better soon.

I get a slight stuffy nose when swimming but can be blowen out easily, and get itchy skin after a week maybe if I don't lotion. Chlorine allergy?

Chlorine irritation: Chlorine is irritating to the parts of our bodies, and can depend on how sensitive our living tissues are to the chemical, and how high the concentration of chlorine is. A true allergy to chlorine refers to reactions of chlorine with our immune systems (think of hay fever, dust allergy, food allergy). One can try allergy meds, but they may not help much if chlorine is directly irritating tissues.
