Many possibilities: There are many types and causes of skin rashes. Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin. Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.

Red spots around ankles swelling?

Red spots around ankles swelling?

Without seeing a pic: It is hard to know exacdtly. Often times when there is swelling around the ankles people develop something called venous stasis dermatitis. This is from the heme in the iron leaking out of the blood vessels and staining the skin. Usually these reddish areas coalesce and form bigger areas. If this is what you have elevation, compression and restriction of salt in diet is good.

See a dermatologist: Begin with a diagnosis. A skin specialist will be your best chance for this. Successful treatment is likely to follow. Meanwhile, elevate your legs frequently if they are swollen. Try a cortisone cream.

Chilblains: Could possibly be chilblain. A chilblain is a small, red swelling on the skin which can be very itchy and gradually becomes very painful. Here's a link to the mayo clinic: http://www.

I have had these small brownish red spots around my ankles for about a week now. Should I be concerned?

Sure: See your doc so he or she can make sure this is nothing motr serious. Many benign things can cause this so can several uncommon and some serious conditions. Never ignore dermatological manifestation of internal disease which I hope it is not the case here.

I have red spots on my feet spreading upwards above my ankle possibly due to circulation. I am wearing the health stockings for many years.

I have red spots on my feet spreading upwards above my ankle possibly due to circulation. I am wearing the health stockings for many years.

Tricky: Dermatologic conditions are hard to discuss without seeing them. The pattern of dots would likely tell if infection or small capillary leakage (circulation). BUT foot swellling is an indication it is circulation. There are limited options for this.

Noticing red spots that almost look like bug bites on inside of my left ankle, same ankle I fractured a few years back. How do I get them to go away?

Noticing red spots that almost look like bug bites on inside of my left ankle, same ankle I fractured a few years back. How do I get them to go away?

Bites: It just may be bites. It's summer in south carolina. Consider mosquito, beetle, bed bug, scabies, chiggers, ticks. Spanish moss in south carolina harbors chiggers. Unlikely coming from old fracture.

They gotta sleep.: Without actually seeing these itchy red "spots", one cannot be certain. And understand that I am speculating. But you can look on the internet for pictures. Are you ready??? BEDBUG bites. Calm down. It's only an educated guess.

10 year old daughter complains of severe aches and pains in her knees ankles shoulders hips and back seeing big red spots, & asthma?

Unlikely related: The joint pains and asthma are probably not related. The spots may be a rash due to an allergy--and asthma can be triggered by an allergy--these may be related. See a pediatrician.

I have pulmonary hypertension. Today I noticed red spots above my left ankle, and a few up my leg. They don't itch. What could they be?

Depends on cause.: Depends on what is causing the pulmonary hypertension. The red spots could be small blood vessels that are visualized by the heart failure or inflammation of the blood vessels, best to check with your doctor.

At the bottom of my legs near my ankles it had been very sore with a burning pain, little red spots have appeared. What is this and will it go?

Several possible: There are several possible causes. You could have a rash from contacting something, such as plant material or metal, or irritation of the hair follicles, resulting in folliculitis. There could be a mild skin infection or bug bits. There could be changes in the blood chemistry causing these spots. A picture would help here, as would a little more history. Can't give an answer, just thoughts.

Evaulation: Joint pain with swelling and skimanifestations could be indicative of a soft tissue or autoimmune illness- these symroms require further blood testing and urine testing as well as a dermatology evaluation.

Vasculitis?: You might have vasculitis? or some other cause for the petechia (little red spots). Time to go get some labwork to determine the cause.
