Dr. John Landi answered:

Can I have a dvt with no pain? I have redness, purple discoloration and swelling. I had a previous dvt. I have a clotting disorder.

It is possible.

The most common symptom of DVT is pain and the most common physical finding is swelling. However, not everyone has these. If you have unexplained swelling with or without calf or thigh pain especially with a clotting disorder, then a venous ultrasound would be indicated to look for a DVT. Sometimes even a CT scan or MRV is necessary. You should be evaluated.

What would cause a rash in hotspot areas, purple and red bumps on legs and on groin ?

Bumpy rashes on legs

Red_bumps
Rashes can be difficult to diagnosis, even by a skilled dermatologist looking at the rash in person. With just a description I cannot answer your question. There are many causes of rashes in these areas, such as a contact allergy, irritation, chafing, fungus, scabies, etc. I recommend you make an appointment with a board certified dermatologist so she/he can examine you and make a diagnosis.

How long are my legs going to stay red from a bad sunburn its already been 4 days and they almost look purple in spots ?

Sun Burn

Sunburn
After sun exposure, skin may turn red in as little as 30 minutes but most often takes 2 to 6 hours. Pain is usually most extreme 6 to 48 hours after exposure. The burn continues to develop for 24 to 72 hours, occasionally followed by peeling skin in 3 to 8 days. Some peeling and itching may continue for several weeks as well as the redness.
